IESG announcements:

 Document Action: 'Sender Policy Framework (SPF) for Authorizing Use of Domains in E-MAIL, version 1' to Experimental RFC
https://datatracker.ietf.org/public/recent_announcement.cgi?command=show_detail&ballot_id=1599

 Document Action: 'SMTP Service Extension for Indicating the Responsible Submitter of an E-mail Message' to Experimental RFC 
https://datatracker.ietf.org/public/recent_announcement.cgi?command=show_detail&ballot_id=1573



Most appropriate comment (from the IESG):

"While many proposals for domain-based authorization have been under consideration, no consensus has yet been reached concerning a single technical approach," the IESG said in a statement. "The IESG does not endorse either of the two mechanisms documented in the experimental RFCs--their publication is intended to encourage further discussion and experimentation in order to gain experience that can be used to write future standards in this space."
