(1) When an AD has an open discuss that he or she does not clear during the
telechat, he or she could send a copy of that discuss to the WG mailing list
directly. This is quite direct, but might be a bit tricky in practice due to
spam filters, etc. because the AD may not be a member of the mailing list in
question. It is also more likely to suffer from human error or omission,
because the tracker is set-up to show us the documents for which we are
responsible AD, not those for which we currently hold discusses.

(2) After the document appears on a telechat, the responsible AD could send
any remaining IESG discusses and comments to the WG mailing list (probably in
a single message), cc:ing the ADs who entered those discusses or comments. I
sometimes do this already, and it typically seems to work well.
Both of these are problematic, because they add more work to people on
I'd support the document shepherd (NOT either shepherding AD or the AD
writing the discuss) being responsible for initiating the dialogue.
If the comments by different ADs don't overlap, each AD's comments
should be discussed separately.
