Hi Lou,

I find the part about private reports very confusing.  If people have implemented an IETF WG draft, why do they keep it private?  Shouldn't it be a positive development to say that you have implemented a WG draft?

Keeping it private seems like it withholds information that would help people understand better how to use the drafts, or show more clearly that these drafts are usable.  Are these dataplane as well as control plane implementations?  In what kind of environment have these been successfully deployed?  Were these multi-vendor or single vendor deployments?

We'd like to thank all who have provided input on this topic, both on list and privately.

We believe we have received sufficient input for these documents to continue towards publication on the standards track.

The primary foundation for our position is the multiple implementations that have been reported privately.  While we certainly would have preferred to see these implementations reported on the WG list, we respect the sensitivity of such information.

The next step for these documents is the completion of the technical work, notably the expected revision of the signaling draft. Once this update is discussed, we expect to move to last call of the WSON documents as a group.

Thank you,
Lou and Deborah
