Yoar,

I looked at this - to see if I missed something - and the picture that
comes over is

Year    number of errata   working group
2005    1                  tewg
2010    5                  nsfv4
2011    1                  nsfv4
2012    1                  nsfv4
2013    11                 Legacy (gen), Poisson (gen), krb-wg (sec),
                            mext (int), nsfv4, non-wg (sec) x 2,
                            keyprov(sec) behave (tsv), non-wg (gen),
                            dane (sec)
2014     35                many wg's
2015     57                many wg's
2016    114                many wg's

I think there are one problem here that need to have some type of
management action. The tewg, nsfv4 and of the wg's with errata from
2013 only dane is still active.

The ADs might have to point to someone to resolve the (oldest) errata.
Or errata that belong to closed wg's.

/Loa

I know the usual process is that someone submits a report, ADs or WG chairs notice, and after a brief discussion the report is classified as Verified, Held for Document Update, or Rejected. But ISTM that some reports fall through the cracks.
