Looks good to me, even though I'm not the most active on this list and
others might have a better say...

Kind regards,
Pierre-Yves Thoulon.

> Dear members of the flac-dev list,
> I'm writing to ask for feedback from the FLAC community regarding the
> possibility of standardizing the FLAC specification through the Internet
> Engineering Task Force.  I'm working with MediaArea on the PREFORMA project
> which focuses on building conformance checkers for Matroska and FFV1. Since
> Matroska and FFV1 are not yet formally standardized, this past July, I
> presented a proposal for an IETF working group for standardizing
> specifications for FFV1 and Matroska, both of which are open-source but
> without formal standardized specifications.  We chose to bring this to the
> IETF because of relevant past/ongoing work in the IETF(including the netvc
> working group's Thor codec and Daala, and the Codec working group 's Opus
> audio codec) and because of the IETF's commitment to open source standards.
>   Input from the IETF community encouraged us to expand our initial
> proposal from FFV1 and Matroska to include FLAC, and create instead a
> lossless codec working group.
> We're very excited about the possibility of creating a working group that
> will address audio and video codecs as well as a container for AV archiving
> and preservation.  We currently have support from both the FFV1 and
> Matroska developer communities, and I wanted to take this opportunity to
> ask the FLAC developer community if there is interest in and support for
> moving forward with the inclusion of FLAC in the IETF working group.
> The IETF process relies on volunteers willing to review and improve
> specifications, and participation in the IETF process happens through the
> IETF listserv.  Currently, discussion of this proposal will take place on
> the IETF DISPATCH working group list--DISPATCH reviews new work for the
> IETF prior to the formation of a working group (
> https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/dispatch).  There is no formal
> membership process for IETF--you become part of the IETF community by
> participating in discussions of work and working on proposed
> standards/publications.  In short, the standardization of FLAC through IETF
> will rely on the flac-dev community actively participating in the
> modification and preparation of the specification.
> Best wishes,
> Tessa Fallon
