i have a question about procedural issues: i have three drafts that i 
would like to enter into a formal review process. since these drafts are 
individual submissions, the question (that i have faced before) always 
is how to make the transition from individually posting and discussing 
the drafts, to this more formal process. the current drafts i have been 
working on (and which i believe are ready to enter the formal path to 
RFCness) are:


with my previous drafts i always was lucky to have somebody shepherding 
them, but it was always a lucky coincidence to find somebody willing to 
do it. the question i have is how to approach this in a way so that i 
can make this transition from individual drafts to the formal process 
more predictable. are there any recommendations or guidance i could turn 
to? is there a different forum i should ask for this?

thanks a lot for your help and kind regards,
