Summary of Working Group Actions from IETF 50 NNTPEXT
Prepared by Stan Barber, Working Group Co-Chair
The group (both on the mailing list and in attendance) was asked to vote on each
of the following items. In all cases, those that voted agreed with the changes
in draft-ietf-nntp-base-13.txt (except for the wildmat specification changes,
which will be in the next draft).
1. UTC Clarification -- The draft now contains text to clarify the use of UTC

2. PAT replaced by HDR -- The draft has deleted PAT and replaced it with HDR.

errors and will be fixed in the next draft.
3. MODE READER Clarified -- The draft contains new text in an attempt to clarify
the use of MODE READER.
4. Wildmat Specification -- The draft has not changed this and there is
considerable discussion on the list concerning how this text should be changed.
The current proposed text to replace what is in the draft is located at this
