Shannon, you are correct. I can't even imagine how all the working groups keep track of what is called in a spec. When you think about the POP, IMAP and LDAP items that are used extensively, how do those groups keep up with other drafts and specifications that use their protocols? This is much bigger than it appears on the surface. I think John's idea is a good one and something similar for working on other groups would be particulary helpful.

have to assume that other standards have and are having the same problem,
different groups using or modifying a standard without reference back to the
Just a thought on my part.

Tonight or tomorrow, I'm going to set up a tool to monitor the I-D
announcements and look for interesting ones. I'm thinking of having
the calsch-related ones it finds go to the calsch list. Anybody
