Re: Change control

What is?

I generally reserve change control over non WG IDs because I have
experienced people hijacking a draft, changing the principles entirely and
adding their name.

Since there is an explicit allowance for that in the IPR regime, I don't see
why this would be an issue.

This is the second time in a year that I came across a case where a
non-IETF group sought to maintain change control over a draft.  In the first
case, several iterations of the draft were posted and the author solicited
comments on an IETF mailing list.

 (a) By making an IETF Submission, is an author allowing the IETF to have
     change control on the work?

 (b) Is it appropriate to use a WG mailing list to discuss a work on
     which the IETF does not have change control?

 (c) If the IETF Submission is covered by the WG Charter, can the WG
     enhance the original contribution in accordance with the IETF
     Standards Process by adopting it as a WG work item?
