Andrew Sullivan will send out a Doodle poll to the IAB to schedule a time to discuss the Name Resolution Program.

Eliot Lear noted that Kathleen Moriarty is planning to meet with the CARIS Workshop team during the Wednesday lunch slot at IETF 92. Dave Thaler noted that this will conflict with the Working Group Chairs’ Training Lunch that the Internationalization Program is running, but at this point, some conflicts are unavoidable.

Cindy Morgan will set up the BOF coverage page on the internal wiki so that the IAB can begin discussions on BOF coverage at IETF 92.

3. Tech Plenary at IETF 92

Dave Thaler reported that he and Mary Barnes are meeting with Hannes Tschofenig immediately following the IAB meeting; they are planning for the technical topic to run 30 minutes total. Dave will send out a draft of the technical presentation slides after the meeting with Hannes.

4. IAB Liaison to the IESG

The IAB approved Brian Trammell as the new IAB Liaison to the IESG. The IAB thanked Mary Barnes for her service in that role over the past year.

5. Update from I* Leaders’ Meeting on 13 February

Jari Arkko and Russ Housley reported on the discussions that took place at a recent I* Leaders’ informal meeting.

6. draft-iab-iana-principles

The IAB approved draft-iab-iana-principles pending edits to be made by Russ Housley. Russ will update the document and send it to the RFC Editor.

7. draft-iab-2870bis

Marc Blanchet asked members of the IAB to comment on the threads relating to draft-iab-2870bis on the IETF discussion list. Jari Arkko noted that people should make clear that they are commenting as individuals, and not as IAB members.

8. Liaison Oversight Program Leadership

Eliot Lear noted that he will be stepping down from the IAB after IETF 92, and as such, the Liaison Oversight Program will need a new Lead. He asked the IAB to consider this, with hopes of having a new volunteer in place prior to IETF 92 to ease the transition. The IAB thanked Eliot for his service in that role.

The IAB also agreed to start merging the ITU-T Coordination Program back into the larger Liaison Oversight Program.

9. Liaison Compensation Statement

The IAB approved the current version of the Liaison Compensation statement. Mary Barnes will forward the statement to the IESG, Cindy Morgan will post it on the IAB website, and Russ Housley will send an announcement to the community.

10. Listing IAB appointments on

The IAB approved adding the list of IAB appointments compiled by Cindy Morgan to the website.

11. Liaison Manager to RSSAC

Marc Blanchet has been serving as the interim IAB liaison to the ICANN Root Server System Advisory Committee (RSSAC) while the RSSAC was in the process of re-booting. With the reconfirmation of the IAB liaison to RSSAC < documents/2015-2/iab-liaison-to-icann-root-server-system-advisory- council-rssac/> and the near-completion of draft-iab-2870bis and that RSSAC has completed its restructuration, the IAB agreed to start looking for a new liaison manager which is not an IAB member.

Marc Blanchet and Cindy Morgan will work together on proposed text for the Call for Nominations, as well as a timeline for the appointment process. Eliot Lear suggested timing the call for nominations so that the IAB can interview candidates during IETF 92; the current plan is to send out the announcement by the end of this week.

12. Liaison Manager to ITU-T for MPLS

Eliot Lear will follow up with Deborah Brungard and Scott Mansfield about whether there is a need to continue having a dedicated liaison manager to the ITU-T for MPLS. This topic will also be discussed in the Liaison Oversight Program. Cindy Morgan will add this to the IAB agenda for IETF 92.


The IAB agreed to migrate management of the internal website and mailing lists from Dreamhost to AMS. Russ Housley will follow up with AMS IT.

14. Executive Session: ISOC Board of Trustees Appointments

Russ Housley recused himself from the discussion and left the teleconference. The IAB discussed the IAB appointments to the ISOC Board of Trustees in an executive session. Ted Hardie and Cindy Morgan will follow up with the candidates to schedule interviews at IETF 92 once the agenda is finalized.
