Re: IONs & discuss criteria

Speaking for myself here but I suspect that other ADs are in the same  
boat ... I'm keen to make sure my Discusses are within the parameters  
of the discuss criteria ION regardless of the official status of this  
document. Agree we need to sort out what we the end result is of  
several experiments. I believe Russ is working to get that some IESG  
agenda time.

The call for comments on IONs seems to have ended without
clarifying the effect of the end of the experiment on the standing
of current IONs.  For most of them, I honestly don't think the
standing is much of an issue.  But for the "discuss criteria" ION,
I believe it is a serious issue.  At this point, it is difficult to  
whether the discuss criteria document is in force or not, and the
extent to which the issuing body is bound by it.

I think this is a very bad thing.

I call on Russ to restore this document to its original status as
an Internet Draft and to process it as a BCP.  IESG DISCUSSes are
a very serious part of our process at this point.  Having a community
agreed standard to which IESG members  could be held was always a  
path than than a document approved only by the IESG.  Now that
the ION experiment is over and the status of its document is in
limbo, things are even worse.

The current document is here:

for those readers playing the home game.
