        I was assigned to do an OPS-DIR review for
        draft-masotta-tftpexts-windowsize-opt-11. I apologize for being (very)
        late with this review.

        Having read through the review, I had some initial concerns, and went
        back to the email and read through the IESG discussion. In particular,
        while I wish the author had chosen to adopt Katheen's comments re the
        Security Considerations sections, I find myself stuck editorially on
        the first sentence of the Introduction section. "TFTP is virtually
        unused for internet transfers today, TFTP is still massively used in
        network boot/installation scenarios including EFI (Extensible Firmware
        Interface)." This run on sentence required me to read the sentence out
        loud and I'm still not sure it makes sense. The third sentence, "this
        way the original limitation of 512 byte blocks are in practice replaced
        in Ethernet environments ..." also has a dangling preposition.
        Considering the amount of discussion this draft has raised, I find
        myself, as a newcomer to the conversation, wanting a bit more
        discussion in the introduction about the problem being solved, rather
        than an assumption that I'm a TFTP expert already. This, however, is a
        minor nit.

        Overall, my main concerns have been addressed in the discussion; I
        believe the draft is fine and good to go.
