I let Sean (the responsible AD) hold a DISCUSS for me on this document.

I managed to accumulate DISCUSSes on 3 SIDR documents, but I passed most 
of them to Stewart (the responsible AD).

Approved on Monday, March 28th.

Peter Saint-Andre took over this document, I became the document shepherd.

Pete Resnick took over this document.

Sean Turner took over this document, I became the document shepherd.

Approved on Wednesday, March 30th.

Approved last week.

I didn't have time to do this. I will followup with Pete Resnick (who 
took over the WG).

A new version was posted by Barry. The document is in WGLC now.

I now have lots of emails to read, reply and process. Somebody mentioned 
that I should have lots of free time now ;-).

Other things of interest:

RFC 6186 (Use of SRV Records for Locating Email Submission/Access 
Services) and RFC 6125 (Representation and Verification of Domain-Based 
Application Service Identity within Internet Public Key Infrastructure 
Using X.509 (PKIX) Certificates in the Context of Transport Layer 
Security (TLS)) got published on March 30th.

After consulting with my co-ADs, there were some changes to WG chairs of 
several WGs:

Gabriel Montenegro replaced Joe Hildebrand as a co-chair of the HYBI WG.
SM replaced Chris Newman as a co-chair of YAM WG.
I became the 3rd co-chair of the APPSAWG.

The OAUTH WG was moved to the Security Area (it wasn't my WG, but I 
participated in the talks.)
