Any chance that someone could get motivated to generate an
I-D, with these documentation weaknesses fixed, and move it
toward Draft Standard? Certainly there are a sufficient
number of interoperable implementations to meet that
I was trying to encourage Paul Hoffman to update STARTTLS when
I was updating SMTP AUTH.
I think we might have a critical mass now.
I can certainly help to review changes. But I don't have much
cycles to [co-]edit a new document before Minneapolis.
I was thinking less about "before Minneapolis" (although that
would be great) but about general efforts to get a bunch of
these email documents clarified, tightened up, and advanced
toward full standard. If we need an excuse, the sorts of
perceived ambiguity, black magic/oral tradition, etc., that this
thread seems to have turned up should probably provide it.
Which remind me... Tony, I don't think I've seen a charter for
the consolidated "advance documents" effort. Is it stalled for
some reason or just slipping toward the "few cycles" cracks?
