Generic comment: is token really on Margaret w/ all of those AD followup documents?

Hi Pekka,
Sort of... When a document is updated, the document automatically goes to the AD Followup state until AD decides what other state it should be moved to. Sometimes that takes a little while...

Let me give a bit more information about the IPv6 documents that I currently have in AD Followup.

The two MIBs (draft-ietf-ipv6-inet-tunnel-mib-03.txt and draft-ietf-ipv6-rfc2013-update-04.txt) were nearly approved during their first IESG telechat last week. IANA had some questions (asked 28-Oct), so Bert is holding a discuss until those questions are resolved. The authors have answered the questions (on 28-Oct and 29-Oct), and we're waiting for confirmation from IANA that their issues has been addressed. I suppose I could put these into "External Party", but I want to remember to follow up if we don't hear from IANA before the IETF meeting.

The router selection draft (draft-ietf-ipv6-router-selection-06.txt) was updated on 14-Oct to address IESG discuss comments (from Steve Bellovin, Bill Fenner, Bert Wijnen and Alex Zinin). There is ongoing discussion (last message on 2-Nov) between the author (Dave Thaler) and (some of?) the discuss-holders about whether or not their comments have been adequately addressed. It appears that completely addressing the issues will require another document re-spin, so this will probably go back into "Revised ID Needed" once we know what is required. I have not yet figured out whether a conference call will be needed to discuss the issues with this document, so I am keepign in AD Followup for now.

The ULA document (draft-ietf-ipv6-unique-local-addr-07.txt) also had several IESG discuss comments (from Steve Bellovin, Bill Fenner, Ted Hardie and Alex Zinin). The document was updated (on 25-Oct) to address the most straightforward of those comments, but none of the ADs have indicated that their issues are fully addressed yet (by clearing their discuss). I may need to review the changes and ask specific ADs to clear their discusses, but I haven't done that yet. It will definitely take at least one more round of updates to address all of the AD concerns with this document, though, and discussion is ongoing between various ADs and authors about this. Also, there is an ongoing discussion of this document in ARIN that may need to be considered if/when it converges on a specific recommendation.

So, all four of these documents are in AD Followup, because I need to track the conversations and determine what the next steps should be. However, I don't believe that any of these documents is blocking on an action from me at this particular moment.

Does that make sense?
