Hi everyone,

We need your help.

We have made substantial progress in seeing to a permanent home for the
TZ database and mailing list after Arthur David Olson's retirement.  The
announcement below indicates that the Internet Engineering Steering
Group (IESG) is now asking for feedback on the proposal, which is for
the function to be homed by the IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers
Authority).  The intent, again, is to document existing practice, and to
establish a succession process.

Now is the time for you to signify your agreement or disagreement with
this proposal.  Please send your comments to ietf at ietf.org, perhaps
copying this mailing list.  The IESG needs to hear from you as the most
impacted community.  Please do let them know what you think.
