Hi all,

Thanks to those who took the time to take part in our poll
to try figure out how to prioritise the list of topics that
you'd like to see the WG tackle in future.

dkg and I had a call to discuss the results [1] of our poll
for initial topics, to try turn those results into milestones
for our updated WG charter. [2]

It looks to us like the poll respondents may well have picked
an initial 4 that might make sense for the WG so we'd like to
check that now. Recall that our plan is to add from the other
topics mentioned in the charter as milestones are completed or
parked, so we're not ruling things out here, we're just saying
which topics we'll tackle first.

We think our poll results could map to these initial milestones:

"
    - November 2023 - call for adoption of drafts related to
      post quantum cryptography to produce a proposed standard
      RFC
    - January 2024 - call for adoption of drafts related to
      superseded keys to produce a proposed standard RFC
    - January 2024 - call for adoption of drafts related to
      persistent symmetric keys to produce a proposed standard
      RFC
    - March 2024 - call for adoption of drafts related to
      WKD and/or HKP to produce a proposed standard RFC
"

The above basically stages the top 4 from the poll but
with a bit of a nod to recent list discussion related to
WKD/HKP. (On that last, if we plan a call for adoption in
6 months time, we've plenty of time to think more.)

That looks to the chairs like it may be tractable set of
topics to try address in a reasonable time-frame so we'd
like to get your feedback on that as an outcome by the
27th of October. If we think your feedback is that the
above has captured the rough consensus of the WG then
we'll add those milestones to the charter text [1] and
send that to our AD asking that the IESG process
re-chartering the WG on that basis. Positive feedback
that this is an ok set of initial milestones would be
welcome. (If the overall WG feedback goes in some other
direction we'll need to go into a chair-huddle again to
see what to try next;-)

Three other things to note:

1) these milestones are for calls for adoption - that
gives people interested in these topics time to write
and/or polish drafts before the WG discusses adoption
so we do not have to only consider the current set of
drafts related to each topic

2) in the case of PQC we can probably start discussion
right now, as it's very clear the WG want to do work
there - watch for a separate mail on the agenda for our
upcoming Prague meeting

3) it could be that this initial set of topics might
lead to a situation where the overall set of editors
of WG documents places too much work on a set of people
with one sponsor, which'd be possibly unfair on those
people. So, as the WG adopt drafts on different topics,
the chairs may sometimes have to seek out new editors
if we run into that situation. (That's actually always
the official IETF process but changing editors at the
time of adoption doesn't happen that much, so we thought
it worth calling out this potential issue.)

Cheers,
dkg & Stephen.
