So... IF I read this right, the plan is to start from RFC4880 and then
re-hash all the discussions we've had in the past decade+ to re-introduce
changes to it?

Or is the plan to start from the current rfc4880bis draft and work from
there to get it across the finish line?

The current wording in the charter leads me to the former and not the
latter process.  Can you please confirm?

Thanks,

-derek
