I mentioned that it was a missed opportunity.  What I mean is to try 
and do things differently if there is an opportunity to do 
so.  Otherwise it is not possible to resolve what several persons 
from the IETF Community has labelled as a "serious issue".

I was asked a similar question from an IETF Area Director.  I would 
expect that people recruiting other people would do more than an 
announcement to get a good pool of candidates.  If someone is an IAB 
member I would expect the person to be aware of the debates that have 
been going on and to use his or her imagination.  If IAB members has 
put in some effort I would try to suggest something (for example, an 
answer to the above question).  It seems to me that anyone can do the 
"we sent a few announcements" if the person has posting rights to 
ietf-announce at .
