Charter charter-ietf-6man-04

The 6man working group is responsible for the maintenance, upkeep, and
advancement of the IPv6 protocol specifications and addressing
architecture. It is not chartered to develop major changes or additions
to the IPv6 specifications. The working group will address protocol
limitations/issues discovered during deployment and operation.  It will
also serve as a venue for discussing the proper location for working on
IPv6-related issues within the IETF.

6man is the design authority for extensions and modifications to the 
IPv6 protocol.  The working group may, at its discretion, review any 
document produced in another working group that extends or modifies the 
IPv6 protocol and, in consultation with the responsible ADs of both 
working groups, may recommend to the IESG that 6man working group 
consensus is needed before any of those documents can progress for 
publication.
