I'm new to this list and I've been reading the archive.  It's all
very unclear to me on what is really going on.  Could someone
please make a summary?  It should probably include:
- What are the things being worked on?  I understand that at least
  part is recommending things for use in TLS, but I guess there
  are also other things being worked on.
- What are the various proposals?  The IETF datatracker doesn't
  seem to known all proposals, and I think there are proposals
  that just don't have a document yet.
- Is there some document with requirements, and maybe a comparison
  of how the proposals meet the requirements?
