Hello, ssm working group. 

draft-ietf-ssm-arch-03.txt incorporated substantial comments from
Pekka, Brian and others.  We went through a second working group last
call on this document back in May, and received no comments on the
revised draft.  I believe that we have working group consensus that
the draft is ready to advance, on a technical basis.

As the -03 draft is near expiration, I am going to submit an -04
version to fix one grammatical typo and keep it alive in the archives.

The only unclosed discussion regarding this draft surrounds the
intellectual property rights statement posted to the IETF web site
back in March (reproduced below).  There was some brief discussion of
it on the mailing list back in April, but we didn't really close the
topic, and so I'd like to bring it up again.  So, with this IPR
statement in mind, let me now ask anyone who has opinions on the topic
of whether to advance draft-ietf-ssm-arch-04.txt to Proposed Standard
to speak up.

I found the following document to be a helpful reference when thinking
about intellectual property issues:
