Proposals for Concluding LDUP
As mentioned in the proposed WG meeting minutes, there
are currently two proposals on the table for concluding
1) A proposal from the co-chairs. Summarized as follows:
A) Publish LCUP spec as Proposed Standard after successful
passage of a WG Last Call.
B) Publish remaining WG documents as either Informational
or Experimental after resolving gross inconsistencies and
explicitly identifying areas where the WG was unable to
achieve consensus in those documents.
C) Reference X.500 BAC in the General Usage Profile as well
as the X.500 Administrative Model (perhaps from the drafts
by Steven L. and Kurt Z., perhaps directly from the X.500
D) Reference X.500 BAC and Administrative Model in other WG
documents as needed.
E) Documents should enter WG Last Call on or before
the July 2003 IETF Meeting.
F) Conclude LDUP when last document is published as an RFC.
2) A proposal from Mark Wahl. Summarized as follows:
A) Publish LCUP as a Proposed Standard after successful
passage of WG Last Call.
B) Conclude LDUP once LCUP spec is published as an RFC.
C) Convert all WG documents to individual I-D contributions
and allow editors to work out consensus (or not) outside
of the context of a WG.
I have spoke with a number of folks who have opinions about
the pros and cons of either approach.
Please post your views to the list on the pros and cons of
these approaches and indicate which way you are leaning at
Also please feel free to post your observations about any
inaccuracies in the summaries of the proposals above.
