Congratulations to the entire DeltaV working group for reaching this
milestone!  This is a significant event as it reflects confidence in the
work of the group over a number of years, the first step along the Internet
Standards track, and protocol stability for client and server developers.

Special thanks and credit is deserved, of course, for Geoff Clemm,
DeltaV-er extraordinaire for his tireless progression of the work.

I'm sure we'll see DeltaV implementations being written to the new Proposed
Standard imminently.  In the meantime the entire working group should take
a moment to reach over and pat ourselves on the back!
