Dave (and the whole NTP WG),
You asked the question, what is next...
Harlan has graciously taken your revision of the -04 draft
and generated the specified internet-draft format. (Thanks to
Jim/Jack/Bill for the original document, you (Dave Mills)
for the markup, and Harlan for the reformatting). We are
This will be submitted to the internet-drafts repository as
the -05 draft as soon as the internet-drafts window opens
We will then begin another period of soliciting for comments,
this time on the -05 draft.
In order to gain traction on the document, Brian and I have
decided to solicit these comments in a more formal manner, much
like the RFC Editor does.
Comments will need to be submitted to the official NTP WG
mailing list (this list).
Comments should be in the following format.
1)*** SECTION #'s*** [i.e. Section 5, 2nd paragraph]
2) the text you want changed,
3) the new correct text and
4) if the changes are spacing or indentation than please
Please comment on changes to the -05 document (when available).
Please do not send a new document with any changes already
Comments will be discussed on the list, and the editor that draws
the short straw will get the onerous task of incorporating the
agreed upon changes.
Folks that would like to get a head start can view the draft at:
www.eecis.udel.edu/~mills/ntp4.txt. This is a temporary site until
the draft moves to the official internet-drafts repository.
We really need folks to read the draft and provide comments.
All the editors and Dr. Mills have observed the general lack of
feedback. This makes their job harder. Please review and speak up.
Also, don't forget there is a newly posted NTP MIB for review as
Thanks again for all the recent effort put into getting this document
