Ted Hardie:
	Howdy,

	The recent set of API discussions has been spread across both the rtcweb and public-webrtc mailing lists.  That's making it both harder to follow and harder for folks to work
	out who is saying what under which rules.  The chairs of both groups believe that the right place for the discussion to continue should be public-webrtc.  Please direct follow-
	ups on this topic to that list.


Does that include moving the SDP "API surface" discussions and decisions to the public-webrtc mailing lists? 

I am frankly quite concerned given earlier comments that yes, the W3C had given responsibility for "JSEP" and the resulting SDP work to IETF, and so now we have the IETF WG making decisions but the discussion happening on the W3C list -- which means there's no "paper trail" prior to the IETF meeting on an IETF list about how the participants have weighed in -- and then conversely when the W3C spec gets to last call there will be no "paper trail" at the W3C showing how decisions had been reached about the SDP "API", as that happened over in the MMUSIC WG, which list was not even copied on this message.
