    1. Minutes of previous meeting

    2. Review of action items

      see above

    3. Administrivia

      ICANN Nomcom: IAB will do it if asked to do it. Liaisons: IAB wireless workshop suggested that we need better liaison with groups working on wireless IP.

    4. IRTF report and news

      ICS-cast has been proposed as IETF working group. Does this belong in IRTF? General sense of discussion is that this work is actually engineering and appropriate for IETF.

    5. IESG liaison report and news

    6. Workshop report status

    7. Internet draft processing report (from Adelaide meeting discussion)

      Turnaround under 24 hours for IDs submitted properly. Working Group documents that required WG Chair authorization (i.e., .00 versions) may take longer if Chairs don’t respond in a timely fashion.

    8. IAB Mailing list and spam

      Waiting for information on ISI mail system.
      One possibility is automatic filtering and routing of dubious stuff to human moderator.

    9. Appeals, pending appeals, and boilerplate

    10. Multiple root paper.

      Should we request BCP processing? It is in queue as an Informational RFC. Consensus that not worth making a BCP at this time.

      ICANN Root Server committee interactions. Concern that it is moving rather far into architectural issues, with no “IETF as IETF” representation. John Klensin will suggest to Jun that he work to schedule ICANN Root Server committee the meetings so as not to conflict with other IETF meetings.

    11. IDNS

      Quick statement on stability and integration. Get comments from IAB list and put out as an IAB-authored draft this week (with Leslie as document editor).

    12. Egress filtering statement?

      Do we need “yet another filtering statement” to supplement what already exists. Will ask for more detailed statement from Mo (?last name?).

    13. Coordination and Normalization

      Normalization for UCS4 being defined by NFS Working Group. Need a standard that can be used across IETF working groups.

    14. Work items.

      Need to identify no more than 4 main themes on which to focus over the next year.
