I am shocked by the declaration of consensus on 
draft-ietf-spring-srv6-network-programming by Martin Vigoureux. There 
was much discussion going on about one aspect of the draft, and there 
was clearly no consensus amongst the participants. There are still 
questions that haven't been answered about even the applicability of the 
contested text, let alone addressed. Promised about for example 
reporting back on the impact on RIR policies have never been fulfilled. 
And those are just the two bits that concern me most personally.

Steamrolling a draft through a working group completely undermines the 
whole idea of the IETF and greatly damages it trustworthiness and 
reliability.  By bluntly declaring consensus despite all of the 
objections within two hours of the latest version of the draft being 
published I feel that Martin Vigoureux has lost the credibility as an 
AD. I strongly feel a resignation is in order at this point.
