Hiya,

I re-read [3] and it is much improved, thanks.

I do have a few remaining comments:

- The word "privacy" doesn't appear. That needs to be fixed,
to provide the proper balance vs. things like: "Sufficient
high-quality data on participants their activities,
motivations, expectations, etc to support an evidence-led
culture." I'd say the way to do that is to make a generic
statement that the LLC aims to honor the privacy expectations
of the IETF community - those vary a lot but we are and should
be a picky crowd when it comes to this topic. (Sorry for not
noticing this in my earlier review.)

- I can't see how all the stuff about "participant journey"
isn't either waffle or over-reach, e.g. if "Fully documented
participant journey" meant that the someone thinks IETFers are
going to only follow paths set-out in such a document, that's
silly and over-reach. If it doesn't mean that then what's it
for? I suggest removing the term and replacing each occurrence
with whatever is really meant in each case (or with nothing).
(And then re-reviewing.)

- Saying "LLC strategy closely aligned with the strategic
objectives of IESG, IRSG and IAB" still indicates a fundamental
misunderstanding IMO. Those bodies cannot, collectively, have
an agreed set of such "strategic objectives" at any given
moment in the sense meant here. ISTM that baking that error
into the LLC's strategy is likely to lead to over-reach as
the LLC "extrapolates" from something that can never exist.
I'd suggest just deleting the offending statements would be
best.

Cheers,
S.
