Bernard gave more context on the document including the history of the distinctions between Ethernet and IEEE 802 handling in early RFCs, and a review of the nature of the multiple encapsulations issue within the 802.16 set of standards. The agreed upon action is to press ahead with the Multiple Encapsulations document. It has already been circulated with IEEE 802 for comment.
The IAB discussed coming to closure on time, space, and the attendee list.
The IAB discussed the handling of the agenda at the plenary. It was agreed that the discussion of the RFC editor process was an IAB discussion and would be part of the IAB plenary when the IAB is present on the stage. The independent submissions process discussion is a separate topic and would be discussed on its own separate agenda item, a plenary topic but not an IAB plenary topic.
The IAB agreed that the top-level items to address this year are:
Olaf agreed to be the IAB Liaison to the 2007 Nomcom
The IAB went into executive session and concluded the discussion of the Dean Anderson appeal with a vote on the proposed text of the response. The appeal response was supported by all voting members except Eric Rescorla who abstained.
Eric agreed to last editorial rev on DOS doc before publication.
Lixia agreed to make progress on GSE history before the end of the month.
Lixia and Dave Oran agreed to begin moving Untangling Activeware document forward.
Phil and Leslie agreed to find a spot on the public IAB website to put up the presentations to the workshop that were agreed to be public. Lixia and Loa have a report that is taking shape and that also will be made public on the IAB workshop after it is reviewed and approved by the workshop attendees. Some of the presentation material was quite sensitive and an agreement was made to limit circulation of the minutes of the workshop to the members of the workshop and that agreement will be upheld.
The IAB agreed that the topic of the July techchat is the context for the NEA discussions that are going on around the NEA BOF.
Kurtis volunteered to lead a discussion on Anycast during the August techchat.
Phil agreed to put together a couple of alternate proposals for the business meetings in August taking into account folks vacation schedules.
The IAB reviewed the IRTF Delay Tolerant Networking Research Group’s work.
