Dear Mr Vigoureux,

I would like to thank you for the timely response to my question.

Mr Decraene, who is listed as a SPRING Working Group Chair stated [1] 
the following: "Even though I have zero specific write/modification 
privilege on the text in this document, and I'm not part of the 
authors email alias, this would not be ideal for me to take the 
decision to forward this document to the IESG."  I assume that it 
would be fair to say that the Working Group Chair was straightforward 
in informing the SPRING Working Group that the situation is less than ideal.

The difference between "conflict of interest" and "potential conflict 
of interest" is sometimes lost, especially when there is an 
ill-disposed discussion.  Those discussions can be unpleasant when 
there is a perception of bias or other interests at stake.

One of the principles of natural justice is that one cannot be judge 
and party in a case.  In the matter under discussion, Mr Decraene is 
the Working Group Chair taking the decision(s) on 
draft-ietf-spring-srv6-network-programming and listed as a 
Contributor of  draft-ietf-spring-srv6-network-programming.  Based on 
that, I unfortunately have to disagree with your assessment on 
whether there would be a potential conflict of interest.
