Gail,

We only have ourselves to blame for the non-progression of these drafts in
the IETF. Nobody in the IPP WG stepped up to the task of responding to the
comments that we go back from our Area Director. If you or somebody else in
the WG is prepared to pick up the job where we left it off these drafts can
still be progressed. It seems that Tom Hastings is not prepared to spend
more editor's time on this as he is already overextended. Also, this is not
only an editing job, it is also a matter of reaching IPP WG agreements on
the changes requested by the Area Director.

These drafts are IETF drafts and although people who are also PWG members
have made most of the contributions in them they have not been "given by the
PWG to the IETF", so there cannot be any question about "giving them back".
As for the PWG getting the rigth to take over some of the drafts as basis
for possible future PWG standards, I think that would be a question for the
PWG chair to take up directly with the IESG, via our new Area Director. I
don't think this can be handled on the IETF WG level, although I can
certainly contribute in the discussions.
