Technical Summary
   The work of the IETF is to discuss, develop, and disseminate 
   technical specifications to support the Internet's operation.  
   Technical publication is the process by which that output is 
   disseminated to the community at large. As such, it is important to 
   understand the requirements on the publication process.

BOF Summary
   There was healthy debate in two BOFs and the associated
   mailing list. The requirements represent the rough consensus
   of that debate as judged by the authors, advised by the
   IAB Chair and General Area Director. A significant number
   of changes and clarifications were made as a result of
   IETF Last Call and IESG comments.
Protocol Quality
