Hi Dave,

Thanks for your work, please provide us with feedback while the process of
editing. I was thinking to do something in the future, but thanks that you
will do it.


Folks, There is now an Internet Draft, based on Adrian's's slides, intended
to document common practice in the adoption of working group drafts:

Title:   Creating an IETF Working Group Draft

   The productive output of IETF working groups is documents, as
   mandated by the working group's charter.  Working groups develop
   these documents based on initial input of varying levels of maturity.
   An initial working group draft might be a document already in wide
   use, or it might be a blank sheet, wholly created by the workiing
   group, or it might represent any level of maturity in between.  This
   document discusses the process of creating formal working group
   drafts that are targeted for publication.

Although it is not intended for a standards-track or bcp publication, it would
be helpful to have discussion that moves the document to represent good
agreement among the community.
