I do not want to speak for Bob or Marshall.  However, Bob is away 
from email, and I have not seen responses from Marshall to any email 
that I sent him recently, so Marshall is either away or swamped.

The Trustees have agreed to the points that will be made in the 
response to John Klensin's request for review.  The Trustees are 
waiting to see the final text.  Once that text is presented and 
wordsmithed, it will be posted.  I expected that to happen before 
now, but August schedules have interfered.
