All,

I agree with Tom Hastings that the interest for these drafts have decreased
dramatically since they were first created almost 3 years ago. I clear sign
is that were have not responded to comments from our Area Director received
a very long time ago.
It also seems that there is a lack of interest to implement the features in
these drafts from vendors, so who would we be writing these standards for? I
think we are just spinning our wheels to no effect!

However, before we officially ask the IETF secretariat to kill off these
documents for good, I would like to give everybody in the WG a chance to
comment.

If you or your organization still have interest in pursuing the completion
of any of these 4 draft documents, I want to hear from you on the IPP DL no
later than April 12, 2004. This gives you plenty of time to think this over
one more time.

If we decide to drop these documents is also means that we can drop the IPP
WG as an active IETF WG. As stated, the IPP DL will still remain in place
for discussion of the RFCs that have made it to Proposed Standards or
Informational earlier in the WG life cycle.

If we don't hear from you before the deadline, it will be interpreted as if
you agree to close down any further work in the WG.

Regards,

Carl-Uno Manros
