Dear all,

After a long silence, I want to manifest my interest in both documents:
- constrained-voucher that extends and completes [ace]est-coaps to cover
all non-est brski cases using coap,
- contrained-join-proxy that standardizes the stateless proxy using coap
and coap discovery.

The first document is an anima WG document, which has progressed very
slowly waiting for keyinfra to conclude.
The second was intended as anima WG document once the new anima charter
was adopted.

The separation in two documents makes sense in my opinion.
I don't know why the join-proxy document has slided over the WG horizon.
I still hope that the WG wants to adopt join-proxy. 
Implementations of both douments are in progress at this moment.

cheerio, and thanks,

Peter van ders Stok
