Dear ipdvb WG,

This email contains a short update on the progress of the DVB-RCS MIB 
(submitted as an individual informational document). The document has 
already started MIB Doctor review, but was returned to the authors to 
apply corrections. In the mean-time, we have seen also a change of I-D 
boilerplate and a change of responsible AD (now Jari Arkko).

The authors have recently submitted an updated revision of the draft 
(-05 in the I-D archive), and therefore I shall request the MIB Review 
to resume.

Best wishes,

Gorry Fairhurst
