Hi All,

I've been working on a diff to get SSHFP support for ed25519 in OpenSSH.

SM has been working through the IETF process to obtain the SSHFP RR Type

Despite getting "rough consensus", we still haven't heard anything from the
IETF Security Directors for the draft. SM sent a mail asking why it is taking
so long, and it appears that his mail was ignored.

Please see:

This situation is rather unusual, and that makes me wonder what's 
exactly going on there, as I believe that we've done our homework

Maybe the OpenSSH community needs to get involved, so that we can
get work done :-) ?
