Description of Working Group:

  The 6man working group is responsible for the maintenance, upkeep, and
  advancement of the IPv6 protocol specifications and addressing
  architecture. It is not chartered to develop major changes or additions
  to the IPv6 specifications. The working group will address protocol
  limitations/issues discovered during deployment and operation.  It will
  also serve as a venue for discussing the proper location for working on
  IPv6-related issues within the IETF.

  6man is the design authority for extensions and modifications to the
  IPv6 protocol.  The working group may, at its discretion, review any
  document produced in another working group that extends or modifies the
  IPv6 protocol and, in consultation with the responsible ADs of both
  working groups, may recommend to the IESG that 6man working group
  consensus is needed before any of those documents can progress for
