Shepherd writeup

# Shepherd Writeup for draft-wilde-sunset-header-08

## 1. Summary

Mark Nottingham is the document shepherd; Alexey Melnikov is the responsible
Area Director.

This specification defines the Sunset HTTP response header field, which
indicates that a URI is likely to become unresponsive at a specified point in
the future. It also defines a sunset link relation type that allows linking to
resources providing information about an upcoming resource or service sunset.

## 2. Review and Consensus

This document has not seen substantial discussion in IETF fora, but the HTTP
Working Group is aware of it.  It has been reviewed by the various review teams
across the IETF.

## 3. Intellectual Property

The author confirms that to their direct, personal knowledge, all IPR related
to this document has already been disclosed, in conformance with BCPs 78 and 79.

## 4. Other Points

As Document Shepherd, I think Informational is appropriate for this document;
it's not likely to cause harm, and it may do some good, but it hasn't been
widely reviewed or implemented enough to make it standards-track.
