Shepherd writeup
rfc8449-03

1. Summary

Sean Turner is the document shepherd.
Kathleen Moriarty is the responsible Area Director.

This draft defines a TLS extension to negotiate the maximum size of protected records that each peers sends.  This mechanism replaces the maximum fragment length extension defined in RFC 6066.  It’s standards track because it updates RFC 6066, which is a PS.

2. Review and Consensus

The draft was very well received by the WG, resulting in minimal, minor comments.  There were two threads that contain all of the WG mailing list traffic related to this draft:
https://mailarchive.ietf.org/arch/msg/tls/l700Sq2m5nJDRfaS1VPk8w9sHKg
https://mailarchive.ietf.org/arch/msg/tls/tRwQqjH0-nqZec_9BTa97AfDsd8
Unlike other TLS-related topics, this WG settled on a solution quickly and consensus was very easily found.
