    I sent the note below to the IPP mailing list yesterday. It hasn't been
    posted, and a request for info from the list owner has so far gone
    unanswered. If the list isn't working it needs to be fixed.

    (I apologize if you receive this twice -- I sent an earlier copy from an
    unsubscribed address, I think, so I'm not sure if it made it to the list.)


    This working group has four Internet-Drafts [1] that have been in the "IESG
    Evaluation :: Revised ID Needed" state for units measured in years. What
    this tells me is that the working group has been unresponsive to IESG review
    comments. I have asked the WG chair and at least one editor to review the
    IESG comments and update the document as needed, but the response I received
    was lukewarm.

    Years is too long. Something has got to change. It's either time to update
    the documents, finish them up, and close the working group, or to drop them
    entirely and close the working group.

    To that end: I want to see a reply to this note from the WG chair, posted to
    this working group mailing list by 0000 UTC Friday 2 July 2004 (a little
    more than two weeks from now), describing what the working group intends to
    do with each of the four documents. If no such plan is provided, the
    working group will be closed due to inactivity and the documents will be

    If a plan is provided it must include either a request to drop the document
    or a date by which time the document will be updated and sent to the I-D
    administrator for publication. You may wish to consider finding new
    document editors if the legacy editors are unable to update the documents.
    I am willing to work with you on timeframes if the group shows a willingness
    to move forward with the needed document updates.

    IESG review comments can be found in the I-D tracker:


    Discussion of possible ways forward is appropriate...
