IAB DRAFTS IN PROGRESS:

NOTES:

    1. review actions

      see above

    2. review drafts in progress

      see above

    3. “International Internet” workshop

      Serious conflict: ISO JTC1 SC2 WG2 (multi-octet character sets) is meeting the dates we had chosen.

      Invitee list is getting long with addition of language experts. Also need people who have been deploying and running Internet systems, not just protocol designers and language experts. What about people who understand the “politics” of the language problem?

      Focus a concern. Missing clear definition of scope, what success would be for this two-day workshop, etc.

      Three general areas:

        how to retrofit the existing base
        realities of potential solutions
        advice for new protocols

      Need to distinguish “internationalization” (single Internet-wide solution for multi-lingual, multi-representational problem) from “localization” (locale-specific handling of data).

      RFC 1958 states that protocol elements and publicly visible names “should be in ASCII”–how should this statement be modified?

    4. IPv6 address allocation

      Response to RIRs re. allocation of IPv6 addresses. In Adelaide, suggestion was that would be better to allocate longer prefixes–resulted in draft statement sent to list by Brian Carpenter.

      Bottom line: appears to be general consensus on goal; issue is how to state it in a non-controversial manner. Further discussion will occur on IAB list.

    5. ICANN, PSO, IANA, etc.

      Update on the situation were discussed, without resolution.

Future Meetings

    Regular teleconference second Monday of the month at 10:00 AM Eastern Time.
