Hi Alexey:

Just a small process note here: there is no such thing as an IETF draft 
called draft-agl-cfrgcurve-00.

Given the history of the topic area of this draft, I would strongly 
recommend first submitting this as an IETF/IRTF draft using the ordinary 
IETF submission process. The resulting draft would then be frozen and 
the system would make it easy to track evolution over time. The adoption 
call can then be re-issued with reference to a draft that is actually in 
the IETF system.

Best regards, Rene
