Hi everybody,

Sorry if you've already seen this, but since some related issues are likely to come up at the plenary session this week, you might find it interesting. There have also been a *lot* of messages on the ietf@ietf.org list recently about the RFC Series Editor situation, but you'll have to look in the list archive for that (https://mailarchive.ietf.org/arch/browse/ietf/).

From: Brian E Carpenter <brian.e.carpenter@gmail.com>
Organization: University of Auckland
To: IETF discussion list <ietf@ietf.org>

Various recent discussions here have made me think that the IETF is
at a point where some fundamentals in the standards process, the
publication process, and its basic organization need to be re-evaluated
and perhaps changed. The goal of course would be to make the IETF more
useful, not change for its own sake.

It's above my pay grade to decide whether to start an organized
approach to this, but in addition to the two opinion pieces mentioned
below, please also consider this:
This is about the institution, not the people. Please read the opening
disclaimer, and of course comments are welcome, as always.
