The General Area Review Team (Gen-ART) has been doing reviews of
Internet-Drafts (I-Ds) since 2004.  This document discusses the
experience and the lessons learned over the past 7 years of this
process.  The review team initially reviewed the I-Ds before each of
the IESG telechats.  Since late 2005, review team members have been
assigned to review I-Ds during IETF Last Call, unless no IETF Last
Call is necessary for the I-D.  The same reviewer then reviews any
updates when the I-D is placed on an IESG telechat agenda.
This document is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is
