My preference would be for the Trust to approve the revised TLP
that have not received any negative comments, and thus release the
documents in the RFC Editor queue. Then, the Trust should put
forward alternative text for the sections that have received
negative comments, starting another review period.
So there will likely be yet another revision of the TLP text? That
means the already-overworked volunteer tool developers will have to
add another option to generate new boilerplate, and I-D authors will
endure another round of idnits telling them their boilerplate is out of date.
The document that has been under review since June 23rd does require
a change to the boilerplate. The period of time that the old
boilerplate will be accepted for I-D submission should be significant
in this case.
There are changes necessary to implement
draft-iab-streams-headers-boilerplates-08 I hope that these changes
and the ones for the hopefully-soon-to-be-approved TLP can be handled
in one release.
Since the community is not happy with the proposed TLP changes in
other areas, it is difficult to predict whether acceptable handling
of these issues will have an impact on the boilerplate.
