Hi all,

I would definitely like to see a standarisation of FROST move forward, since I
already have two clients interested in using it, and I have a Rust
implementation in progress here: https://github.com/isislovecruft/frost-dalek
(If you grep for "[CFRG]" there's a few comments on things that I suspect might
be useful to specify in a standard.)

To that end, I'm happy to help the authors with both working on the draft and
review.

Best regards,
--
