Note to RFC Editor

  In Section 8, please update FB-002 as follows:

  OLD:

  o  FB-002: The tool MUST allow the members of the Nomcom to enter
     feedback about any of the accepting nominees into the Private
     Nomcom tool.  The tool MUST allow the Nomcom member to optionally
     enter information about the originator of the feedback.  Note
     that, as in FB-002, anonymous feedback is allowed, and thus the
     actual identify of an originator may not always be entered into
     the tool.

  NEW:

  o  FB-002: The tool MUST allow the members of the Nomcom to enter
     feedback about any of the accepting nominees into the Private
     Nomcom tool.  The tool MUST allow the Nomcom member to optionally
     enter information about the originator of the feedback.  Note
     that, as in NOM-002, anonymous feedback is allowed, and thus the
     actual identify of an originator may not always be entered into
     the tool.
