Hi Adrian, all,

Thanks for those reviews, they really help so keep 'em
coming!

Adrian asked Ben to re-tx his review to the IETF list,
and Ben replied:

We debate this from time to time and so far always land
where we started, which is the above guidance:-)

A substantial number of reviews are nits only and folks
don't feel that sending to the main IETF list is worth
it for those. And sometimes some reviewers are probably
worried that sending to the main IETF list might lead to
a thread that consumes more time than the reviewer has
available.

Anyway, for anyone who's new to this and not sure, or
has forgotten, the above URL is worth a look, and just
use your judgement as to whether or not you send your
review to the main IETF list. Equally, its just fine
if someone asks that the review be re-tx'd as Adrian
did, so I hope folks just do that in those cases, as
Ben did:-)

Cheers,
S.
