One assumes. :)

I don't particularly care how the XEP author convinces the Chair to add
the proposed Last Call to the agenda. Show up at a meeting, send email
to the chair, ping the chair via IM, smoke signals, etc.

Aside from the fact that RFC2119 conformance terms do not apply to human
behavior (would that they did!), yes.

I don't want to add too much process here, I just want to remove myself
