I am pleased to learn that a major IPP implementation will actually have the
notification features in the not too distant future.
However, I have one question for you. As far as I remember the Area Director
comments to our latest drafts was that he wanted to see firmed up or better
text for the security sections. Have you taken those comments into
consideration when planning your implementation? If we want to progress the
drafts in the IETF we need to respond the earlier Area Director comments as
the first step in the process.
Tom, any chance that you can dig out the exact Area Director comments on
these drafts and republish them on the DL to remind us all what they were?
