Elwyn to post. – Minutes for 4/05 are deferred until next telechat.

3. Review of Specific Documents


We’re ready to do a call for input on this.

Liaison Guidelines

The call for input on this has closed. Loa is dealing with comments.

4. Retreat Planning

Consensus on going to the Morrison House. General consensus on 3:00 end time on day 2. Leslie will enforce this aggressively. Don’t plan to leave out of IAD before 6.

5. Executive Director Search

The IAB had a good candidate pool and selected a candidate to make an offer to.

6. Review of hand off items


General consensus on selecting Olaf for this position to replace PAF.

General consensus on selecting Olaf to replace Patrik on the e-mail list at RIPE NCC.

7. Liaisons


Loa outlined that the IETF has no formalized relationship with OIF, although they make use of (and have made changes to) IETF protocols. Loa will continue discussion, with Routing ADs in the loop, and explore whether a formal liaison relationship would be helpful here.


Two additional candidates have been suggested and further discussion is needed.


General consensus on selecting Stephan Wenger as liaison.

ITU-T E2E meeting

General consensus on sending Dave Oran in an informal role.

ITU Multilingual Meeting

General consensus that Pete Resnick would be a good person to go to the ITU/UNESCO Mulitlingualism symposium, and provide any necessary feedback to the IAB/IETF.

8. Review of RFC Editor, IANA 2006 situation

No objections to IAB saying they’re supportive of the TechSpec document.

9. Net Neutrality

Conclusion: we’re not ready for a phone call. Next task is for people to generate treatments for a full piece and put them up on the wiki for a directional reality check. Elwyn and Bernard are planning to generate some independent material by the 28th of April and put it on the Wiki.
