The IAB Call for Comment on “The RFC Editor Model (Version 2)” was sent on 29 June 2011. Joel reported that some comments have been received, and that there are ongoing discussions about use of “the IETF community” versus “the Internet community” in the paragraph on Policy Authority.

6. IP Evolution Program

Bernard asked about non-IAB members of the IP Evolution Program; Danny replied that current Program members are all IAB members. The current Program members will discuss potential non-IAB members for the Program and come back to the board with suggestions.

Danny reported that the Anycast Architecture document is ready for IAB Last Call.

Hannes reported that a draft of the Smart Objects workshop report has been published as an internet-draft, and asked the board to provide feedback.

7. IANA-Evolution Program

Ross reported that emails have been exchanged about “ARIN Draft Policy 2011-5: Shared Transition Space” [submitted as internet-draft draft-bdgks-arin-shared-transition-space-00 on 4 July 2011], and that the relevant documents are still in the early stages of review. Danny suggested that people may also want to follow the discussions on the ARIN Public Policy Mailing List [] to get the ARIN perspective.

8. SDO Coordination Program

The board discussed which AD liaison managers were high on the priority list for replacement, and agreed that finding new liaison managers for ITU-T MPLS and ITU-T SG15 were at the top of the list. The board discussed the job description for the liaison managers, and noted that there is potentially a lot of travel involved. The SDO Coordination Program team will talk to the current liaison managers for ITU-T MPLS and ITU-T SG15 about updating the job description.
