2. Review of specific actions

ISOC BoT appointment timeline

Rich explained the revised timeline, which has the new IAB making its
ISOC BoT selection after the March IETF. The IESG representatives
noted that the timeline would give the IESG two chances to discuss the
IAB’s choice, although it was also noted that the new IESG would still
be getting up to speed. Rich took the action of drafting email
announcing the timeline.

3. Review of specific documents

None were reviewed.

4. Workshop plan

The IAB reviewed the workshop agenda, focusing on the session
structure and session chairs. The IAB agreed on the proposed
structure. The IAB agreed that session chairs and scribes should have
specific instructions if we are to get the desired output for the
workshop report. The IAB considered making a audio recording of the
workshop to aid scribing.

The IAB focused on the first session, discussing which potential
participants might contribute to this session. The IAB scheduled
another teleconference to finish the work with the remaining sessions.

Rich reported the results of his availablity ping of a few potential
participants. As a result, the IAB agreed to move the workshop from
Feb 15-17 to the week of March 6-10. Aaron volunteered to investigate
ISI’s availability to host the meeting that week.

5. APRICOT plan

Kurtis agreed to ask Erik Nordmark if he could participate in the IAB
session on IPv6 multihoming. Patrik stated that at this time he did
not need more input for his session.

6. Upcoming IAB meetings

The IAB confirmed that January 18 is its next business meeting and January 25 is a tech chat on DHTs. Lixia, Eric, Pekka, and Jonathan are working on material for the tech chat. Lixia said she has a conflict on January 25. [In subsequent email discussion, the IAB agreed to start the January 25 tech chat early so Lixia can participate.] Eric agreed to circulate a plan for the tech chat.

7. AOB

The IAB discussed the IETF response to a liaison statement from the
ITU asking about IPv6 standards planning. Margaret had asked Kurtis to
write a response. Leslie asked for IAB volunteers to review the draft
response and contribute text. Dave, Bob, Loa, and Pekka
volunteered. Leslie took the action of talking further with Margaret
and Scott Brim.
