Slight mistake in the previous announcement. The correct version for final
call is draft -01 not -00. It seems that only one person found out so far
that the -00 document had been revomed from the IETF server. Does anybody

assume that we will still keep the Last Call deadline on November 19th as

The corrected information appears below
