This is the second time in a year that I came across a case where a
non-IETF group sought to maintain change control over a draft. In
the first case, several iterations of the draft were posted and the
author solicited comments on an IETF mailing list.
(a) By making an IETF Submission, is an author allowing the IETF to have
change control on the work?
(b) Is it appropriate to use a WG mailing list to discuss a work on
which the IETF does not have change control?
(c) If the IETF Submission is covered by the WG Charter, can the WG
enhance the original contribution in accordance with the IETF
Standards Process by adopting it as a WG work item?
