Hi Mykyta,

The following drafts are about a reclassification to Historic:


Starting with the message at 
, the topic of reclassification to Historic came up regularly since 
the beginning of the year.  As you seem interested in doing the work, 
I suggest that:

  (i)   You post an Internet-Draft with a list of (Apps Area) RFCs that you
        would like to see reclassified

  (ii)  Ask the Apps Area ADs to present the I-D at a meeting so that
        anyone interested is aware of the reclassification work

  (iii) Follow up on the Apps-discuss mailing list

  (iv)  Extended Last Call

The other alternative is:

  (i)   Post a message every few months about reclassifying some Apps Area

  (ii)  Post an I-D

  (iii) Last Call

  (iv)  Go back to step (i)

I'll quote a point [1] that has been raised previously:

   "If there are others who feel that Mykyta's efforts are worth our time, by
    all means speak up and I'm happy to back down here."
