I have reviewed this document as part of the Operational directorate’s ongoing effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the IESG.  These comments were written with the intent of improving the operational aspects of the IETF drafts. Comments that are not addressed in last call may be

included in AD reviews during the IESG review.  Document editors and WG chairs should treat these comments just like any other last call comments.

Document reviewed:  





This document specifies an alternate form of literal that does not require a network round trip of client waiting for the server to send a command continuation request between sending the octet count and the string data. This form of literal is called non-synchronizing literal.

The server advertises the capability of supporting non-synchronizing literal in the CAPABILITY command. By default the server is required to support the synchronizing literal. As such other than configuring the server to advertise the particular capability, there is no operational requirement that I could discern from the document.

The idnits check passed with no errors, flaws, or warnings.
