Re: a thanks to the Gen-ART reviewers

And my thanks, specifically to Pasi, Miguel(twice), Vijay and Joel, who 
as GenART reviewers, provided thorough reviews of documents I recently 
shepherded or co-authored, and followed up diligently after revised 
documents have been published and sent a "ready for publication" or 
"addresses all comments" emails.  Thanks guys.

(I picked the recent instances).

best,
Lakshminath

To Eric, Spencer, and all the other Gen-ART reviewers:  Thank you.

My experience with Gen-ART reviews has been very positive, and I  
appreciate your work and effort.  I realize you weren't seeking public  
praise, but your volunteer contribution to the good of the IETF should  
be recognized.
  

I have to say that I really like these and the cross area reviews a lot. As
an author/editor having to digest zillions of posts on the lists mixed with
time and entropy, it gets really hard to look at the draft with the 
critical eye
of somebody who might have to actually try to make sense of it. Not to
mention trying to determine what the draft says versus the lore that's
built up around it.

If I could make a suggestion, what might really be useful as well is 
collecting
implementation notes, and especially what throws people off when coding
up the draft, or implements things in new and unintended ways. Unintended
can sometimes be very cool, but often it's that the draft isn't 
sufficiently
precise.

          Mike, who tries to do this but given a cookie cutter form 
might do better

Minimally, as one of the people to whom that has happened, it would be
nice if at least an initial ("thanks for the review and comments")  
mail
included the commenter, in every case.  Even a "I wish you would stop
bothering us with all of these silly comments" would be a response.
Of course, I presonally would prefer that that sort of response was  
not
addressed to the list, with or without me on it.  :-)
