Marc, I feel that it is well worth thanking anyone in the
acknowledgements that does a full or significant early implementation
and sends comments to the list about it. Even if that comment is "we
found no problems with the spec". It is a huge amount of work to "test"
a spec by implementing it and a valuable contribution to the development.
If you, or others, see any RAI Area WG drafts that should really
acknowledge an implementation, please bring it to my attention. I
suspect that many people at IETF would feel it is worth saying thanks
for this kind of work, I'd encourage implementors to bring it up with WG
draft editors and Chairs if they think someone should be added to the
Thanks, Cullen <RAI AD>
PS - Thank you for your TURN implementations - as you know, they have
helped find many problems with that spec. I'm off to read the TURN
My contributions were acknowledged, it's not the issue. The issue,
IMO, is that there is not enough early implementations and I was
just trying to find a way to improve this. The solution proposed
was universally rejected, so the problem is still here.
