Thanks for agreeing to be in this directorate.  The purpose is twofold:

1. Provide a place to discuss the Privacy Considerations for Internet 
Protocols draft

2. Test out the recommendations in that draft by reviewing selected drafts.

Most that I talked to about this directorate liked the idea that it 
would be modeled on the security directorate.  To do that we'll need a 
secretary to review the upcoming IESG telechat agenda 
(https://datatracker.ietf.org/iesg/agenda/documents/), select drafts to 
review, and assign drafts to reviewers.  What that means is that we'll 
actually need people to review drafts and send their comments to the 
directorate. The workload will, I think, at most be one draft a month 
per person. Now there are only 15 or so, but we've had 30 requests to 
join the directorate.  So, the workload could actually drop.

I've gotten at least one recommendation for a secretary and Tim and I 
will see if they'd be game.  I suspect the assignment process will 
happen by generating the list of directorate reviewers and then just 
working through the list.

Tim and I had picked out two drafts that seemed bang on appropriate for 
the directorate to review:




Tim and I both have some initial comments on the httpstate-cookie draft. 
You can see them by clicking on the IESG evaluation tab in he 
datatracker.  If you think we've missed something please send email to 
this list.

Nick Mathewson provided Tim and I with some comments on the ipfix-anon 
draft which I will forward shortly to the mailing list.
