Hello Mark,

It’s funny you mention that as there is lots of new people joining SPRING working group in the last year as well. At IETF 105 in SPRING. Have a look here:, long list of people at the mic with questions.

I thought the bright side was that the world is now ready, more than ever, to run IPv6 as underlay in their backbone with great interest and passion 😊

Let’s look at the glass half full, not half empty.

I've been an active participant in the ipng, 6man and v6ops IETF working groups since 2002.

While I've only been to one IETF meeting in person since then (106, sponsored by the Internet Society), over that time I've come to recognise the names of many of the regular and active participants in these IPv6 working groups.

I do not recognise many of the names of people who are objecting to the 6man working group adopting the CRH draft.

Those who have been active 6man participants in recent years would know that even an ID adopted by 6man, written by Bob and Brian, that had a number of revisions, didn't survive WG last call, and that occurred while Bob was (as he still is) one of the 6man WG chairs.
