I don’t think I saw the message either. Apologies if it got lost in the swarm of spam messages that get filtered by mailman!

Are you thinking of something that would appear 

A) in the document
B) in the metadata for the document (so, on the info pages or in the data tracker)
C) in the index
D) All or some combination of the above
?

Is what you’re looking for already on the data tracker pages for RFCs? I know that shows things like doc shepherd, but I don’t recall if it shows GenART or SecDir reviewers.

Thanks!
Heather
