Last Call On draft-yevstifeyev-tn3270-uri-12

2011-01-11 11:33:14
tn3270 is a widely used protocol but also a venerable one, so it is a little
surprising that the IETF is to register a provisional URI for it at this stage.

I have always seen it as an IBM protocol, and while that is no bar to being
an RFC - there are plenty of Cisco or Microsoft parallels - I am somewhat
surprised that the I-D contains no hint thereof; it does seem discourteous for
IBM not to appear in some guise, or perhaps I am missing something.

The provenance of the editor is unknown to
me - and of course, once an RFC has been through the IETF processes,
then the editorship is an irrelevance - but I am concerned that I have
no awareness of the contact provided as the scheme 'Author/Change controller',
no track record, no affiliation, a gmail address.  This seems more than
discourtesy, this seems wrong.

As such, I believe that this I-D should not progress to an RFC.
