NOTES

    1. Acceptance of minutes of past meetings

      • January 8, 2001 (as circulated February 9, 2002)

      Accepted.

    2. Review of Action Items

      (below)

    3. Review of current IAB documents

      (below)

    4. Liaison updates

      IESG:

        Nothing major going on.

      IRTF:

        In the middle of discussions with OPS ADs as to relationship between AAAARCH work and standards work in the IETF. NSRG — hoping that they will produce the overview document that has been under discussion there.

      ISOC:

        Nothing beyond the agenda item (#8).

      W3C:

        New coordination call scheduled — March 11.

      ITU:

        ENUM — progressing in discussions.

      PSO:

        Discussing the annual handoff of the secretary function. W3C is next up.

        Steve Bellovin is stepping down as a PSO-PC appointee from the IETF. Geoff Huston is appointed to replace him, effective immediately. Steve will announce it to the PSO-PC. John Klensin will make the announcement to the IETF announce list.

    5. NomCom Status

      The voting members of the IAB considered the list of IESG nominations forwarded by the NomCom. As part of the due diligence in considering confirmation of the nominations, the IAB has requested further details of nomination information as per the documented process, as well as seeking clarification of certain aspects of the procedures used by the NomCom in order to be assured that these actions conformed to the objectives of the process.

      Rob Austein will redraft a note asking for further detail from the nomcom.

    6. ENUM status

      ITU Study Group 2 has signed off on our interim procedures for ENUM registrations in e164.arpa; registrations are starting to occur. Problems are migrating elsewhere. Do we need an ENUM-specific liaison to ITU-T?

    7. IANA response re. .bz redelegation

      John Klensin has drafted some remarks and circulated them. Editorial comments received from some IAB members, but no consensus yet. John will redraft and circulate note.

    8. ISOC Board appointee process

      Draft governance procedure in front of the Board, but there are details to work out. IETF(IAB) will be free to define its own process for selecting candidates, with the only linkage to avoid collisions with the ISOC NomCom process in terms of naming candidates. These are expected to be regular Trustees. ISOC counsel doesn’t seem to think that a voting ex officio officer is anything that makes sense.

      IAB will make selections of 2 BoT members for this year. This IAB will issue the call for nominees (initiating the process), and the next seated IAB will make the selection.

      John Klensin will write the note to the IETF community outlining this proposal.

    9. Bert’s management architecture question

      Ran Atkinson has put together a focused proposal for a network management architecture workshop. Almost ready for circulation to the IAB list. Hopefully we can make some announcement in Minneapolis.

      Brian suggests we can agree in principle that it’s good topic for a workshop.

    10. Is there anything to action about IDN?

      Ran Atkinson has offered to coordinate a document re. the chinese character set issue, as brought to us from the IDN WG. John Klensin is working on it with him.
