Not google's gossip protocol. This is an effort by the IETF. The
current authors are Linus Nordberg and Daniel Gillmor but a working
group adoption call will follow soon, upon where this becomes an IETF
trans working effort.

Yes, Google authors are playing an important part in this, and yes they
are contributing greatly on the RFC6962bis effort but so did Cisco on
IPv6 and we don't call that a Cisco protocol either.
