LDAPbis Acknowledgement Policy
To ensure WG documents appropriately and consistently
give credit to WG document editors and authors, prior work
document editors and authors, and individuals providing
other significant contributions to WG documents, the
following acknowledge policy is established. Editors
should use reasonable discretion in executing the policy.
Each WG I-D shall list in the header the name and
organization of the document editor and author(s)
of the WG (revision) document. The editor shall be
listed first and labeled as Editor. The author is an
individual who has made a direct major contribution
to the WG (revision) document.
The document editor and author(s) of prior work(s)
shall be credited in an Acknowledgement section.
Other significant contributors to the (revision)
document may be credited in the Acknowledgement
section. Such credit should be in a separate
paragraph from prior work(s) acknowledgements.
A request from a named individual to be credited
in the Acknowledgement section instead of the header
or not to be credited shall be honored.
This statement is based upon past LDAP revision/update
acknowledge practices, comments from the WG, and is
believed to be consistent with IETF policy and tradition.
