3. Document discussion: draft-iab-dns-zone-codepoint-pples

Dave Thaler presented an overview of the open issues on draft-iab-dns-zone-codepoint-pples after the IETF-wide Call for Comment. The document will be updated, and the changes are substantial enough that the document will go back into IAB Last Call.

4. Document discussion: draft-iab-dns-applications

Jon Peterson presented an overview of the open issues on draft-iab-dns-applications. There is concern that some parts of the document are being misinterpreted; work on the document continues in order to remove the ambiguity.

5. Document discussion: draft-blanchet-iab-internetoverport443

Alissa Cooper asked about the current status of draft-blanchet-iab-internetoverport443, which was previously sent to the IP Evolution Program for discussion. Dave Thaler reported that the Program was not yet ready to make a recommendation on the document. Jari Arkko reported that the document is on the IP Evolution Program’s agenda to discuss on Friday at IETF 85. The board agreed to hold off an adopting the document until they hear back from the IP Evolution Program.

6. Document: draft-iab-modern-paradigm

Bernard Aboba reported that the IETF-wide Call for Comment on draft-iab-modern-paradigm ended on 1 November 2012. Russ has resolved requests to change the text of the OpenStand statement as “won’t fix” since the document is intended to be a record of the OpenStand statement signed by the IAB and IESG Chairs. A face to face meeting of the OpenStand signing organizations is being planned. If it does not occur in the next few weeks, it is likely to slip into 2013 due to the holidays. The board agreed to wait until after the face-to-face meeting to progress draft-iab-modern-paradigm further.
