Subject: Barry Leiba's Yes on charter-ietf-cbor-01-01: (with COMMENT)

Barry Leiba has entered the following ballot position for
charter-ietf-cbor-01-01: Yes

When responding, please keep the subject line intact and reply to all email addresses included in the To and CC lines. (Feel free to cut this introductory paragraph, however.)

The document, along with other ballot positions, can be found here:


Nit: "a mechanism other that" should be "a mechanism other than".

"and add to a second edition of the specification if warranted" ... presumably this is in the re-charter because it *is* warranted.  I suggest removing "if warranted".
[JLS] I would be happy for a re-wording, but the "if warranted" related to individual features and not to the entire process of producing a second version.   A better string might be "where warrented"

"The body of existing specifications that make use of CDDL is considered
precious":  Awwwwwwwww...  :-)
[JLS] Not actionable?

"It is currently expected that this would be done using a Wiki of some type.
This work would not be expected to be published by the IETF."  Yayyyyy!  Thanks.

Nit: that are either currently adopted by the working group, by other working groups, or as individual submissions" is not a parallel list.  Maybe, "that are currently adopted by the working group, are work items in other working groups, or exist as individual submissions."  Also, I suggest removing the paragraph break between this paragraph and the next.

Nit: "Internet wide specifications" needs a hyphen: "Internet-wide specifications".
