For those not steeped in IETF process, the IETF LC is two weeks.  IETF LC also kicks off the directorate review process; we are likely to receive General Area and Transport Areas as well as our own Security Directorate review; you can see the reviews on this page ( just look for “Reviews” before the draft’s contents in the metadata.  We will address these comments as we get them and substantive changes are brought back to the WG.

Kathleen has also gone ahead and placed the draft on the 2018-03-08 IESG telechat.  So, it is likely that in early March IESG ballot positions (i.e., discusses and comments) will start rolling in then; if you are curious, you can read up on some of this at:

There may be an additional version of the draft published prior to the IESG review to address IETF LC issues (the IESG likes to see as clean a copy as is possible) and there may also be another version published after the IESG telechat to address points raised by the IESG.

There’s more after the IESG, but I can fill in those blanks when we get there.
