Hi, John. The prevailing view on the IESG seems to be that the
combination of RFC 3683 and 3934 actually took away our ability to
approve suspensions greater than 30 days but short of a PR action.
Others seem to believe that while we might want to fix that, we should
deal with this matter first.
can you see a reading of 2418 as amended, 3934 and 3683 together that
give the IESG the power to approve a longer suspension?
