The IESG has received a request from the Internet Wideband Audio Codec WG

- 'Definition of the Opus Audio Codec'
<draft-ietf-codec-opus-12.txt> as a Proposed Standard
Section 10 about "copying conditions" mentions "without
royalty". There was a message to the CODEC mailing list about the
Qualcomm IPR disclosure. The Licensing declaration in the Huawei IPR
disclosures do not mention royalty-free. Was that taken into account
by the authors for the statement in Section 10?
Could the authors please clarify what they mean by "the work" in the following:
"The authors agree to grant third parties the irrevocable right to
copy, use and distribute the work (excluding Code Components
available under the simplified BSD license)"
