I don't understand why this wouldn't go for external review. Maybe someone could explain that on the call?

My understanding is that we do external review for a couple of reasons - so we don't surprise other SDOs, and so they are aware that we're considering new work and can provide feedback. 

(External review also goes onto New-Work - I thought automatically, although people who have been on the IESG longer could say for sure)

(Stephen Farrell) Yes

Is "CBC block cipher mode" really not redundant somehow?

Helpful if the text could expand "CBC" and "RC4" notwithstanding they are terms of art in TLS. Also probably correct to give pointers to the relevant RFCs

I agree with Pete that we should have external review here.  The two-week delay won't make any difference.

Definitely ready for external review. I'm not clear how we can go without external review given that this is changing a primary item in the current charter, which explicitly forbids looking at TLS 1.3. Shouldn't this go out for the new-work list and everyone to see before approval?

(Martin Stiemerling) No Objection
