4. Regular Reports

RFC Editor Report
Joyce K. Reynolds

  • Per Ray Pelletier’s suggestion, as of 1 January 2006, the following boilerplate will be changed in the various RFC Editor’s publication files:

    Old:

    Funding for the RFC Editor function is currently provided by the Internet Society.

    New:

    Funding for the RFC Editor function is provided by the IETF Administrative Support Activity (IASA).

  • The RFC Editor has sent out a “call for opinions” w.r.t. I-D strings in references sections. The message was sent to the RFC Editor Editorial Board, the IAB, and the IESG.

  • Continued to work with Henrik Levkowetz and Bill Fenner on XML –> RFC issues in response to community questions and critiques.

IRTF Chair Report
Aaron Falk

  • Revising draft-iab-irtf-01
  • Sent out a bunch of research group reports to irtf-announce
  • Received proposal for ‘MANET Operations’ RG
  • Discussing ‘small group multicast/XCAST/ALM’ bar BoF in Dallas
  • Thinking about RG publication process
  • Thinking about IRTF plenary talk and RG review for Dallas

ISOC Liaison Report
Lynn St. Amour

The ISOC liaison report is quite short as much of the activity over the last month has centered around IAOC and IASA activities.

  • ISOC participated extensively in the formation and subsequent reviews and approvals of all the contractual documents required to complete the various CNRI-NeuStar-IASA arrangements. ISOC along with CNRI was a settlor to the Trust and we are very happy that we are able to offer support to the IETF.

IESG Liaison Report
Bert Wijnen

  • IESG is discussing a policy that an AD can unlock a document in case of no reponse from (missing, nonresponding) authors during AUTH48. Idea is to be able to do so starting at 2 weeks after the AUTH48 starts. The topic still needs a (formal) check with RFC-Editor.

  • The IESG has responded to the appeals by Julian Mehnle and William Leibzon. Both appeals were against approval of publication of draft-lyon-senderid-core-01.txt See following URLs for details:

    http://www.ietf.org/IESG/APPEALS/appeal-response-julian-mehnle.txt

    http://www.ietf.org/IESG/APPEALS/appeal-response-william-leibzon.txt

  • The IESG responded to an appeal by J.F.C. Morfin. The apeal was about a decision by the LTRU WG chair and the AD. For details see:

    http://www.ietf.org/IESG/APPEALS/appeal-response-rfc-3066.txt

  • The IESG is still working on a requested PR-action (RFC3863) against Dean Anderson.

  • The IESG had also two fully loaded IESG telechats in which we reviewed many documents for publications and quite a set of WGs for chartering or rechartering. So we were still able to do productive and useful work.

5. Liaison-related actions

The IAB discussed how a working group can reply to a liaison from another SDO, without modifying its charter to take on another document. The IAB agreed that existing WG processes (i.e., using the WG list to establish consensus for a reply) seem adequate for liaison reply purposes.

The IAB agreed to eliminate duplication between

http://www.iab.org/liaisons/index.html
and

http://www.ietf.org/liaisonActivities.html
by having the IAB web site retain liaison reports and reference the IETF web site for the full list of liaison managers.

The IAB discussed the need for a liaison with IEEE 802.1. MIB transfer is a current pressing topic, and there are longer-term interactions like TRILL. The IAB agreed to have a liaison subordinate to the overall IEEE 802 liaison manager. Bernard accepted the action of writing up requirements for the position.

6. IDN Next Steps

The IAB discussed draft-iab-idn-nextsteps-00.txt. The IAB supports the draft, which stems from work of the IAB’s ad hoc committee on IDN issues, but unfortunately the draft does not represent a consensus position of the ad hoc committee. The IAB agreed to proceed with the draft as an IAB document, while appropriately acknowledging the input of the ad hoc committee.

7. APRICOT plan

The IAB discussed its plans for the upcoming APRICOT meeting in Australia. The IAB is involved in two sessions. Patrik is leading a session on the IETF (Feb 28). Dave is leading an IAB sesion on IPv6 multihoming (March 1). Dave would like more IAB attendees because after the similar NANOG session in November, he received comments indicating that there wasn’t enough IAB representation. The IAB agreed to draw up a list of critical attendees and if necessary, support their travel with the IAB discretionary fund. The IAB agreed that Kurtis, Dave, Lixia, Leslie, Patrik, Loa, Margaret were all critical.

8. Update on .ARPA management/recent ICANN agreements

The IAB agreed that Leslie should send the draft email she had circulated, regarding .ARPA TLD management. [See http://www.iab.org/documents/correspondence/2005-12-22-dot-arpa.html]

9. Workshop plan

Leslie took overall ownership of the workshop. The IAB agreed to probe the availability of a short list of definite invitees, but to defer sending invitations to a more complete list. The IAB agreed to poll its own attendance. Rich reported that a hotel near the Dallas airport has rooms, and a nearby Nokia facility has meeting space. Rich also reported that the nice folks at Merit had given him the name of the NANOG hotel, but sworn him to secrecy. Rich was contacting this hotel to determine their availability. The IAB noted that internet connectivity at the NANOG hotel might be an issue. The IAB agreed that its members should chair sessions at the workshop.

10. Network stories

The IAB deferred this agenda item to next month.

11. Upcoming IAB meetings

Leslie noted that Jan 4 is our next business meeting and Jan 25 is our next tech chat. The agenda for Jan 4 will focus on the ISOC BoT selection timeline and the workshop. The agenda for Jan 25 is DHTs, led by Lixia, Jonathan, Pekka, and Eric.

12. AOB

(None discussed.)

ISOC BoT Appointment Timeline

Rich Draves
Initiated: December 2005
Goal: Create a timeline for the IAB’s appointment to the ISOC board.

Scope of IETF Architecture

Dave Meyer, Allison Mankin
Initiated: August 2005
Goal: Create an effort to develop a statement of the scope of the IETF architecture.
Old Status: No progress. The IAB will discuss this with the IESG in Vancouver to better understand this action item, which originated in a request from the IESG.

New Status: One data page drafted. Slowly filling data to others. For hosting, we could partition the IAB’s private web site into public and private areas and host a public wiki.

RFC Editor Copyright

Leslie Daigle, Brian Carpenter
Initiated: November 2004
