Ballot Text

Technical Summary

   This specification updates the requirements for adding new entries to
   the IANA Secure Shell (SSH) Protocol Parameters registry.  Currently,
   the requirement is generally for "IETF Review", as defined in RFC
   8126, although a few portions of the registry require "Standards
   Action".  This specification will change that former requirement to
   "Expert Review".  This draft updates RFC 4250, RFC 4716, RFC 4819,
   RFC 8308.
