IESG Statements

These messages represent the IESG's best effort to deal with specific issues that have come up from time to time and are not meant to be a way for the IESG to revise the established IETF processes. If at any time someone feels that one or more of these messages represents a misunderstanding of the intent of the relevant RFCs the issue should be taken to the IESG mailing list for discussion.
