Just privately.  It was clear you had good intentions, and you really did catch some problems, particularly in the TLS doc.

I guess my only suggestion would be that you read over your comments and trim them down to those that you think are really important before posting them in the ballot.  I know that means that you leave some potential improvements on the table, but I have received private comments from area directors in the past.  That worked out pretty well.

Thanks for the continued engagement though.  Though the volume was hard to manage, it was easy to resolve things in the end.

Some were deemed to require no action and have been closed, some were Editorial issues that have been addressed by PRs that have been merged into the working copies. The remaining issues have been identified as Design issues, see
