Target times for MIB Doctor Review
I am here in an IESG retreat about improving IESG/IETF performance.
One of the things being discussed is that MIB doctor review (one of
the situations where some ADs put the doc in "expert review" status
as the substate in the I-D tracker) can take enourmously long.
The main reason is that it is often difficult to find a reviewer, and
then the doc sort of by defaults ends up in my queue (which is too
So the suggestion is that we would like to have a target of MIB
Doctor review to be done within 30 days of the request.
I want to hear from you how to deal with that?
If we cannot find a good solution, then the only alternative that
I can see is that we will get MIB documents onto IETF Last Call
and onto IESG without the normal MIB Doctor review, and so the
OPS-NM AD (for now that is me) will only check for fatal errors.
The result might be that we end up with MIB documents in much worse
shape than what we have seen over the last few years.
What do we think about this?
