suggestion for volunteer effort:
we should have enough people on problem-statement that between us, we have
a fair number of experiences with the process.
if one person volunteers to keep a list, people could send him/her case
histories with the dates (and version numbers) of:
- WG Last Call sent
- WG forwards draft to AD
- IETF Last Call
- Document approval
Like John, I'm somewhat skeptical that contemplation of statistics will
give us the qualitative understanding we need - but the people who think
that it would should be encouraged to demonstrate the point!
I think we should be able to collect enough data from the list to figure
out whether those data would be meaningful or not - until we have a hint
that they would be meaningful, I would not ask the secretariat or the ADs
to use time collecting data rather than clearing their backlogs.....
