Summary: Ready with nits

Major Issues:


Minor Issues:

s3.2, para 1 and para 7: I feel the phrase 'superior candidate' is rather demeaning to an incumbent who may have served with distinction. Suggest in para 1 s/a superior candidate/an alternative candidate/. In para 7 s/A superior candidate  is one who the NomCom believes/The nominated candidate selected for each open position by theNomCom, whether incumbent or alternative,  is the one that they believe/

Nits and Editorials:

s2, Confirmed Candidate: s/that has been/who has been/ (for consistency with Candidate)

s3.2, para 1: s/its incumbent/its incumbent, assuming that the incumbent has indicated willingness to continue in post,/

s3.2, para 2: Section 5.4 of draft-ietf-iasa2-rfc4071bis-04 indicates that there are term limits for the IETF LLC board positions and Section 2 of draft-ietf-iasa2-trust-update-02 indicates there are term limits for IETF Trust positions.

s3.3, para 3: s/is selected/are selected/

s3.7.1: The summaries of expertise need to be made public to facilitate candidate's ability to address the requirements in their submissions to the NomCom and for others to make appropriate comments on candidates.
