Ted Hardie asked the Plenary Planning Program to start thinking about potential topics and speakers for IETF 100 now, noting that travel to Singapore for some speakers may be an issue.
Lee Howard reported that he had a call with some people from ISOC earlier this week about the Internet in developing economies. The Program plans to start organizing tech chats on the topic soon.
3. Unicode 9 and 10, UTS#39, and IDNA and SMTPUTF8/EAI
The IAB discussed the draft text for a liaison statement to Unicode. Ted Hardie will update the text based on the discussion, with input from Gabriel Montenegro on the security concerns and Joe Hildebrand on some of the PRECIS context. The goal is to have the text ready for an e-vote by 8 May 2017.
4. EName Workshop Proposal
Ted Hardie sent out an updated proposal for a workshop on EName (formerly Maintaining Internet Namespace Coherence). The timeline has the workshop happening sometime in September. Mark Nottingham noted that QUIC is planning an interim meeting around the same time, and there may be an opportunity to hold the workshop and the interim in the same region to reduce travel costs.
Robert Sparks asked who the intended audience was for this workshop. Ted Hardie replied that in addition to IETF participants, he would like to send the call for papers out to the .onion and Namecoin communities. Mark Nottingham suggested that the browser community should be involved as well.
Ted Hardie will update the workshop proposal based on the feedback received.
5. 2017 Retreat
Ted Hardie, Cindy Morgan, and Robert Sparks will draft an agenda for the IAB retreat. Mark Nottingham will only be available to join the retreat remotely after 1600 EDT; he will send a list of the proposed topics that he is particularly interested in so that they can be scheduled accordingly.
6. IESG News We Can Use
Suzanne Woolf sent the draft 2017 communications plan out to the IAB.
7. IAB Job Description for NomCom
Ted Hardie asked the IAB to track how much time they spend doing IAB work between now and the retreat and send that information to Cindy Morgan. Cindy will then put together an anonymized histogram showing the time spent on IAB work, so that the IAB can use that when putting together the IAB job description for NomCom.
8. ISE Search
The IAB approved the text for the message announcing the ISE search committee. Robert Sparks will ask Cindy Morgan to send the message out for him.
9. Executive Session: Community Coordination Group (CCG) Appointment
