1.4.  Meeting Minutes

There were two sets of minutes under review for final approval.  The
minutes of the 2011-04-13 business meeting were approved with two
changes.  The board also approved the transcript from the IETF 80
plenary for inclusion in that meeting’s proceedings.

Dow asked the board to review the minutes of the 2011-04-27 business
meeting so that they can be approved at the next meeting.

2.  IETF 81 Technical Plenary

Alissa reported that the plenary preparations are ongoing.  The board
discussed various options as to how to structure the panel session, and
agreed that the panel should include someone to talk about legal,
regulatory and/or policy aspects of privacy (possibly a Canadian DPA);
someone to talk about the identification/re-identification/
fingerprinting aspect of privacy; someone to talk about the
communications aspect of privacy; and someone to give the IETF
perspective.  Alissa and Hannes are pursuing various contacts and will
be extending invitations to potential speakers soon.

3.  IESG Retreat Review

Olaf reported that at the IESG retreat last week (2-3 May 2011), there
was a discussion about IETF interaction with other SDOs.  The consensus
of that discussion was that in certain cases, it would be beneficial for
the IAB to take more of a leadership role.  Olaf let the IESG know that
the IAB is currently working on how to better manage these interactions
as part of the SDO Coordination Program.  The board discussed Olaf’s
report, and agreed to delve into this further at the upcoming IAB

4.  Status of Programs and Initiatives

The board deferred specific discussions about the Programs and
Initiatives in order to spend more time structuring how those topics
will be addressed at the upcoming IAB retreat.  (See 5 below.)

The board discussed planning a series of conference calls for further
discussion of the Programs and Initiatives after the IAB retreat.  Dow
will send an email to the board to confirm the best dates for these


4.1.  Privacy Program
4.2.  Internationalization Program
4.3.  RFC Editor Program
4.4.  IANA Evolution Program
4.5.  SDO Coordination Program


4.6.  IP Evolution
4.7.  DNS
4.8.  IPv6 for IAB Business (inc. IPv6 day)
4.9.  HTTP/Web Evolution


4.10.  Evaluate Mapping of IAB Website and IAB Communication Processes

5.  Retreat Planning and Agenda

Bernard presented the most recent version of the retreat agenda to the
board.  The board discussed whether to spend time at the retreat
discussing the various Programs and Initiatives, or whether that time
should be re-allocated to allow more time for other discussions.  The
board was concerned about finding the right balance of policy
discussions and technical discussions for the retreat agenda.  After
consideration, the board agreed to include some of the Programs and
Initiatives on the retreat agenda in order to spend time advancing some IAB documents that
were “almost ready for publication”. The board also decided to spend some
time at the retreat on planning for the IETF 81 plenary.

6.  Meeting with W3C TAG

Bernard reported that the W3C TAG will not be able to meet with the board in
Quebec City.  Bernard is following up with the W3C to try and schedule
an audio or video conference instead.

7.  Action Item Review

Cindy reported that she has contacted several board members for updates
about the current status of their action items, and that progress has
been made in getting that list updated.  Dow briefly went through the
remaining action items and asked for updates; as a result, several more
actions were marked as either done or overtaken by events.

8.  All Other Business (AOB)

There was no other business.

9.  Conclude Call
