The IESG has received a request from an individual submitter to consider the
following document: - 'Zstandard Compression and the application/zstd Media
  <draft-kucherawy-rfc8478bis-03.txt> as Informational RFC

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits final
comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the mailing lists by 2020-01-17. Exceptionally, comments may
be sent to instead. In either case, please retain the beginning

   Zstandard, or "zstd" (pronounced "zee standard"), is a data
   compression mechanism.  This document describes the mechanism and
   registers a media type and content encoding to be used when
   transporting zstd-compressed content via Multipurpose Internet Mail
   Extensions (MIME).

   Despite use of the word "standard" as part of its name, readers are
   advised that this document is not an Internet Standards Track
   specification; it is being published for informational purposes only.

   This document replaces and obsoletes RFC 8478.
