Adrian,

technical discussion of the drafts on the mailing list would help more
than having process meta-discussions. It is good to know who (other
than the authors) is volunteering to substantially review the drafts,
is willing to contribute to the discussions of any issues, and is
planning to implement the technology defined in the drafts as this
will likely help the chairs to make a decision.

But in addition to the poll, we also have somehow introduced an IPR poll at adoption time (while I can see the merits of being explicit about IPR, and we have seen one or two people attempt to wriggle out of their responsibilities, it seems unnecessary to serialize the two calls). Now you appear to be introducing an additional step to test "adoption suitability".

> The Chairs & AD discussed the results of the various adoption hums conducted during the 108 meeting.  There is a sense that the results didn’t adequately determine if the drafts should be adopted.  In particular, it wasn’t clear if the hums reflected a general desire to solve the problem or support for the particular draft.
