2. RFC 2870bis

The board discussed the current status of RFC 2870bis in relation to the RSSAC’s planned updates to the operational procedures for root servers, noting the the two documents should progress in parallel. Marc Blanchet agreed to draft a message to the RSSAC about the current status of RFC 2870bis for the IAB to review.

3. Open IAB Positions

The board briefly discussed open IAB positions.

The IAB Lead for the IP Evolution Program will be selected after the board discusses possible changes to the Program’s structure at the 2013 IAB Retreat.

Dave Thaler indicated that he would like to step down as IAB Lead of the Internationalization Program (but still remain an active member) in order to focus on some IP Evolution items this year, and that Andrew Sullivan is interested in taking his place as I18N Program Lead.

The IAB Liaison to the NomCom for 2013-2014 has yet to be selected; it was noted that this position involves a significant time commitment and whoever volunteers will likely need to get approval from their management first.

Further discussion of the topic was deferred to the mailing list and the next IAB Business Meeting on 10 April 2013.

4. Retreat Planning

The board reviewed an initial draft of the 2013 Retreat agenda. Based
on the feedback received, Russ Housley will post an updated draft of
the agenda to the internal wiki. Board members will fill in abstracts
and desired outcomes for each agenda topic that they are scheduled to

5. Response to Liaison Manager Appointment Process

The board discussed concerns raised by several members of the community on the IETF Discussion list about whether there should have been an open call for a new IETF Liaison Manager to the ITU-T. The discussion will continue in email.

6. Executive Session: ICANN Board of Directors Liaison Appointment

The board appointed the Liaison to the ICANN Board of Directors in an Executive Session. Russ Housley will confirm the appointee’s acceptance of the position and follow up with the other candidates, encouraging them to volunteer for other roles the IAB will be filling in the future.
