I would like to call the list's attention to draft-irtf-cfrg-dragonfly-00, recently written
by Dan Harkins at the request of the CFRG chairs.  Please look it over.

P.S.  We'd welcome suggestions for other algorithms CFRG should take under its
wings.  Our goal is to have a single site people can got to and find cryptographic
primitives either currently being used in the IETF or deemed suitable for IETF usage.

The ongoing effort to collect the IETF symmetric key algorithms into a single RFC
is a core part of this effort, but only covers primitives currently in use, not primitives
that the list feels might have a role to play in future IETF standards.
