Hi John,

(+ Allison and Adrian)

Thanks for your email. While this document was on the Nov 30 telechat
schedule for a month, the AD shepherd for the conflict review was not
assigned until the week of the telechat, as has been typical practice on
the IESG for many years. Given the timing of the shepherd assignment,
the shepherd and the rest of the IESG did not have time to conduct the
conflict review prior to this week’s telechat. While we wouldn’t expect
it to be common for conflict reviews to require our attention on a
particular telechat date, we would be happy for the ISE and IRTF Chair
to provide us with advance warning (beyond the automated telechat update
notice) when scheduling a conflict review they’d like to see

We will plan to process conflict-review-klensin-dns-function-
considerations-00.txt on 12/14 as currently scheduled.

Alissa on behalf of the IESG
