this sometimes doesnt work. for example, I submitted a 00 version
working group draft on Oct 18 draft at 2 am (PST). I dont think
the WG chair could have stayed up that late to send out the draft
for me before the submissin deadline (6 am PST). :)
I prefer just cc'ing the WG chairs when I submit the draft,
and the WG chairs, as soon as possible, sending a mail confirming
that the document should be processed as a working group document.
can you ask the secretariat if they are okay with this? :)
that was what the procedure used to be - and someone had to keep track
of the pile of I-D submissions for which there was no response (yet)
from the WG chair. That extra load is what the secretariat has been
trying to avoid during the rush.
Can't we just require the working group chairs to send approvals before
the submission deadline? Much of the problem before was that there was
no definite cut-off date for approvals.
