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to generate new boilerplate, and I-D authors will endure another round of idnits telling them their boilerplate is out of date.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.
