The IESG has completed a review of draft-irtf-cfrg-chacha20-poly1305-10
consistent with RFC5742.

The IESG has no problem with the publication of 'ChaCha20 and Poly1305
for IETF protocols' <draft-irtf-cfrg-chacha20-poly1305-10.txt> as an
Informational RFC.

The IESG has concluded that this work is related to IETF work done in the
TLS WG, but this relationship does not prevent publishing.

(And this work is in fact highly desirable for the TLS WG)

The IESG would also like the IRTF to review the comments in the
datatracker related to this document and determine whether or not they
merit incorporation into the document. Comments may exist in both the
ballot and the history log.

The IESG review is documented at:

A URL of the reviewed Internet Draft is:

The process for such documents is described in RFC 5743  

Thank you,

The IESG Secretary
