All, and Tianran.

The chairs have been working closely with the authors for the last week in trying to make improvements to this draft prior to agreeing to initiate an adoption poll.  Our primary concern has been, and continues to be so, that the draft doesn't clearly specify the problem statement, while describing perhaps too many implementation-level details.

We understand that adoptions of a draft is just a starting point for the WG to develop the draft from.  However, without a clear problem statement, it is difficult to discern what is scope the draft.  In particular, we perceive this draft as enabling clients to 1) discover how many line cards there are and 2) determine the "message-generator-id" for each (however 'each' is mapped).  Additionally, we feel that this draft's claim to defining a distributed logging architecture is overreaching, as distributed Syslog-based implementations have existed for years.  

What does the WG think?   The chairs are cognizant that such questions may be sussed out in the course of an adoption poll, but felt the need the WG to focus on this particular point first.  We would welcome the WG to discuss this point on list before the 106 meeting.

Kent and Mahesh
