Call for Feedback on ICANN Root Zone Evolution Review Appointment

On behalf of the IETF, the IAB has been asked to name a technical expert to the ICANN Root Zone Evolution Review Committee (RZERC).

The RZERC is expected to review proposed architectural changes to the content of the DNS root zone, the systems including both hardware and software components used in executing changes to the DNS root zone, and the mechanisms used for distribution of the DNS root zone. The Committee shall, as determined necessary by its membership, make recommendations related to those changes for consideration by the ICANN Board.

The process for appointing this representative is outlined in RFC 8128.

The current IETF-selected member of the RZERC is Tim April, who has indicated that he is willing to continue in this role for the 2023-2024 term. The IAB is now soliciting input from the community on this incumbent.

Please send your remarks in confidence to and by 23:59 UTC on Wednesday, 2023-07-19. We thank you in advance for your help.
