Hi Dhruv,

Thank you for your review!

Below are responses to your comments.

Fixed (also fixed in other drafts where the issue arose)

We could set the “status” to “deprecated”.  That said, it's one thing to say that a protocol is deprecated and another to say that the configuration for a still somewhat widely-used deprecated-protocol is deprecated…thoughts?

Because the draft has been a work in progress for longer then TLS 1.3  ;)

Just added an identity for 1.3.

Fixed (in all drafts)

Correct, Gary Wu helped with the YANG module only (in the “ssh” draft also).  For both drafts, I’ve created a new “Contributors” section to better call out his contribution.

Reference added.
