LDUP WG Last Call: LCUP Deliverable
The purpose of this message is to initiate the LDUP
working group last call on the LDAP Client Update Protocol
The document in last call is:
WHAT IS A LAST CALL FOR?
The purpose of the working group last call is to ensure
that the working group has reached consensus on the
document, believes that all the known outstanding issues
have been addressed, and is ready to put the document
forward for Proposed Standard status.
During the last call, any comments on the documents are
collected and discussed on the mailing list.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
The last call starts Monday, June 16, 2003 and will
last approximately two weeks.
It will end on Tuesday, July 1, 2003 at 1700 US ET.
WHAT'S THE NEXT STEP?
After the last call completes, there are three possible
1) No changes are required and we request our ADs to put
forward the documents to the IESG for Proposed Standard
2) Minor changes agreed to on the list are required, and
the documents are revised. We then ask our ADs to put
forward the revised documents to the IESG for
Proposed Standard status.
3) Major issues are raised and no consensus is reached on
the list. In this case, we discuss things until consensus
is reached, at which time another working group last call
will be issued.
Assuming we achieve outcome 1) or 2), and that the ADs
agree with our assessment, the next stop for the documents
is with the IESG. The IESG reads them and may approve the
documents (with or without changes), or send the documents
back to the working group to have major issues addressed.
If the first outcome happens, the documents are put forward
for a two-week last call to the entire IETF, and after
successful completion the documents are published as RFCs
with Proposed Standard status.
If the second outcome happens, we go back and address
the issues, putting the documents forward again when we
believe they're ready.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?
You should read the documents, making sure that 1) there
are no problems or deficiencies or outstanding issues that
need to be resolved; and 2) that there are no typos,
formatting problems, grammatical errors, etc.
Any substantive problems you find, you should send to the
list. Any minor problems (typos, etc.) you may send to the
list or just to the authors. If, for some reason, you have
comments you don't want to send to the entire list, you may
send them to me and/or LDUP WG co-chair John Strassner.
Silence means consent.
Read, enjoy, and send your comments in!
