Document: draft-klensin-idna-unicode-review-02
Reviewer: Joel Halpern

IETF LC End Date: 2019-08-30
IESG Telechat date: Not scheduled for a telechat

Summary: THis document is ready for publication as a Proposed Standard

    This reviewer found the document quite readable and clear about what it was doing (with one minor issue noted below.)  The reviewer does not have the background to evaluate whether the technical substance is correct or incorrect, and leaves that to the community review.  The document is quite persuasive.

Major issues: N/A

Minor issues:
    I would like to see a little more explicit text in section 3.2.  It was not until I reached the IANA considerations (section 8) that I realized that section 3.2 intended to mandate that the IESG create and where applicable use a broad review team for the new code point review.  I think a sentence or so along the lines of "Creation of this team when needed is a new responsibility placed on the IESG by this document." would have helped.

Nits/editorial comments: N/A
