All: I have updated the shepherd's writeup for cost-calendar as follows:

ALTO Cost Calendar
Shepherd: Vijay K. Gurbani <vijay.gurbani@gmail.com>

1. Summary

The document shepherd is Vijay K. Gurbani. The responsible Area Director is
Mirja Kuehlewind.

This document is an extension to the base ALTO protocol (RFC 7785).  It
extends the ALTO cost information service such that applications decide
not only 'where' to connect, but also 'when'.  This is useful for
that need to perform bulk data transfer and would like to schedule these
transfers during an off-peak hour, for example.

This document is targeted as a Standards Track document (Proposed Standard).
This designation is appropriate as the document contains normative behaviour
and message formats that should be adhered to by the communicating entities
in order to realize the extension.

2. Review and Consensus

Cost calendar is a well-know extension within the working group, having been
first presented as an individual document on Jul 4, 2014 (individual -00
version).  It was subsequently adopted as WG item on Jul 28, 2016.

The work has been reviewed by at least four key WG members in the past.
Version -01 was reviewed on Jun 29, 2017 by Yichen Qian and Li Geng; version
-02 was reviewed by Dawn Chen on Jul 12, 2017 and by Jensen Zhang on Dec 02,
2017.  A WGLC was held on Feb 22, 2018.

Post WGLC, version -06 of the document added a beefed up Security
Consideration and a new Operations Consideration section to the draft.
Key members of the WG (Dawn Chen and Jensen Zhang) reviewed these two
sections of the draft.

The draft was presented to the IESG and balloted on 2018-12-04.  This
resulted in a number of COMMENT and two DISCUSS that brought the draft back
to the WG [1].  The comments have all been addressed to the satisfaction of
the ADs,
as have the DISCUSSes as part of a second WGLC.  During the second WGLC,
Kai Gao,
and Jensen Zhang provided a WGLC review.  I did a shepherd's review as
well.  The
WG considers the draft to be ready to move to IESG.

There is one known implementation, authored by the editor of the draft.
The work has been discussed extensively in the WG over the years, and the
WG feels that the document is ready to be moved out of the group and into
