[OpenID board] [board-private] FW: PAPE Specification Review Period Commencing

I don't see where the IPR Process or Policy states that.  The closest  
I see is "The applicable WG Editor(s) will post the draft for review  
by Contributors to the applicable WG, and by the Board, and promptly  
notify these Contributors and the Board that the draft is available  
for review."  "openid.net" is mentioned five times throughout the two  
documents with no where saying "the home page of openid.net".

What frustrates me is that the audience of the OpenID blog is not one  
that understands IPR or what this review period means.  It would have  
been far more impactful to tie this back to other posts about PAPE,  
explain again what PAPE is any why it matters, and explain what this  
review period means for implementers.  It also would be nice if the  
post didn't contain all sorts of ridiculous HTML markup from being  
composed in Microsoft Word.

I'm quite honestly really disappointed and don't see why this needs to  
be on the board-private mailing list (thus moving).
