IPR policy Enforcement

Triggered by a case last year and a new one this month, the IESG is
looking at the issue of what sanctions are available to WG chairs and
the IESG to use against individuals who significantly breach the
IETF's IPR policy. Initially, this will take the form of advice to the
CCAMP working group chairs to address an immediate case, and an
Internet-Draft to allow the community to consider and agree on the use
of sanctions.

3.3. RFC Editor Liaison

–Begin RFC Editor Liaison written report–

1. RSE
The RSE has met with Olaf Kolkman in Amsterdam to discuss immediate
projects and concerns that have been holding for a permanent RSE.  A
meeting was held with the IAD, Ray Pelletier, to review contracts and
SLA.  The RFC Production Center and Publisher met with the RSE onsite in
Fremont to go over processes and start on work to update the Style Guide.

The initial list of projects waiting for RSE action has been created and
is being reviewed with the RSOC as well as the RFC Production Center.
Out of that list, initial priority is being given to updating the Style
Guide and to continuing to make the RFC Production Center and the RFC
Publisher discrete components that can transition independently as
contract changes require.  Other items such as updating the RFC Editor
website content (News, FAQ, Site Map, component descriptions) are
expected to be part of ongoing background effort.  In general, the goal
will be to balance community-visible changes and internal process

2. RFC Production Center
The Production Center saw record submissions (364) in 2011.  With the
assistance of the new part-time editors, the queue remains under
control.  We are anticipating a surge of submissions around the March
IETF meeting as departing Area Directors clean out their queue in
preparation for the new ADs.  This is expected and understood to be part
of the ebb and flow of the IETF.

3. Announcements
A retreat with the RSOC is being planned for Saturday, March 24, 2012,
in Paris.

3.4. IRTF Chair

–Begin IRTF Chair written report–

Paris planning is beginning, it looks like quite a number of RGs are
planning to meet.

With regards to the ANRP, we have decided to move to a yearly
nomination/selection cycle for 2013. In order to get the timeline
aligned, we're skipping the ANRP for Paris (no time to select awards
for all the 2012 meetings over the holiday period) and instead select
the awards for the two remaining 2012 meetings before the summer
meeting. I need to communicate this to the community.

4. IETF 83 Plenary

The board agreed on application-layer Internet security as the topic for the IETF 83 plenary panel session, but agreed that the current scope of the proposal needs refining. Hannes will send an updated proposal to the board, along with a list of potential speakers, by 3 February 2012.

5. Smart Object Security Workshop

The board decided not to sponsor the Smart Object Security Workshop in Paris as an IAB workshop.

6. Document Status

6.1. Smart Object Workshop document

Hannes will update draft-iab-smart-object-workshop with two minor changes from Dave Thaler, and then Bernard will issue the Call for Publication.

6.3 RFC Editor Model v2

Joel reported that the new revision to draft-iab-rfc-editor-model-v2 is forthcoming. Bernard reported that Heather Flanagan (RFC Series Editor) has questions about the RSAG; Joel will talk to Heather offline.

6.4. Anycast Architecture

Danny had to leave the meeting early, so draft-iab-anycast-arch-implications was not discussed.

6.5 Extension Recommendations

Bernard will post the resolution of the open items on draft-iab-extension-recs to the IAB mailing list.

7. Pre-IETF meeting scheduling

The board discussed guidelines for scheduling events adjacent to an IETF meeting, and agreed that it would be beneficial to announce any such events within two weeks of the previous IETF meeting. Bernard noted that schedules for the next few IETFs are now posted on the IAB Wiki, so as to enable advanced planning.

8. TLD Names

Olaf reported that the IANA strategy list and the Internationalization Program have been discussing an IAB statement on TLD names. Olaf will send the statement to the board for approval. Once the statement is approved, it will be posted to the IAB website and communicated to IANA and the IESG.

The Internationalization Program will discuss a potential workshop on on IDN and TLDs.

9. All Other Business

There was no other business, and the meeting was adjourned.
