I. Public Comments needing attention (only highlights) ======================================================= (All public comment processes: https://www.icann.org/public- comments#open-public) Label Generation Rules for the Root Zone Version 2 (RZ-LGR-2) (https://www.icann.org/public-comments/rz-lgr-2-2017-06-06-en) End: 24 July 2017 II. Topics that could be relevant ================================== Ongoing activities: SSAC095: SSAC Advisory on the Use of Emoji in Domain Names ----------------- The ICANN Security and Stability Advisory Committee has given guidance on use of emoji both in the root zone and in general discouraging the use of them. Strategic: Cooperation with ICANN ------------ ICANN-IETF cooperation has traditionally relied in active individuals who happen to be active in the both organizations due to their own interest. There has been positive development in individuals even working for the ICANN organization have become more active in the IETF. However, there may be more need in the future for also in deepening the participation and cooperation in the other direction. There clearly are topics that are of mutual interest including special-use names and activities like HOMENET. Perhaps over time, IAB should think about how to make sure the IETF presence in the ICANN processes either by more efficient use of the current liaisons to the ICANN organizations and/or what can be done to ensure the continued participation of interested individuals. There is no emergency in this space, but I think it might be advisable for the IAB to keep this in mind. III. (If relevant) upcoming meeting topics of importance ========================================================= ICANN meeting, June 22nd-29th, 2017, Johannesburg, South Africa

The PTI budget has to be completed approximately 9 months ahead of the beginning of the ICANN budget cycle. Action Item: M. Cotton will send exact details of budgeting timeline to the group. Ideas for improvements: A. Cooper suggested the ability to do automated registrations. R. Housley suggested making available an auto/pre-check for registrations that will be included in the RFC. Example yang module automated check (Henrik has details) Checking to make sure the authors have included everything that is needed for the registrations they are requesting in the document. M. Cotton: Something that is similar that has been discussed internally registry tool to help authors create registries and determine what type of registry they want. This would allow them to see what the registries will look like. Potentially providing authors with text to put in their document. T.Hardie: Being able to match the registry creation tool with automatic registrations would be good. R. Housley: Similar to how Doodle gives the user choices, a registry creating tool could do the same. M. Cotton: Reminder, if there are any additional ideas that you have, please email them to Michelle. 3. Summary of Action Items M. Cotton: Send exact timing for budgeting cycle to group DRAFT MEETING MINUTES - END

2.4. RFC Editor Liaison Report
–Begin RFC Editor Liaison Report, Heather Flanagan–
RFC Series Editor Update - Format The first tool of the new format tool suite, id2xml, is being tested by the RPC and various members of the Tools Development list. This tool converts plain text Internet Drafts to XML files. More information on the timeline for the various format tools is available on the wiki: https://trac.tools.ietf.org/tools/ietfdb/wiki/FormatToolsPlan In addition to testing tools, the RPC is also working on evaluating how existing editorial workflow and tools handle non-ASCII characters. The httpbis working group has put forward one of their drafts, draft-ietf-httpsbix-rfc5987bis, for testing. We will be scheduling an update on the format tools at the IETF 99 WG Chairs lunch. - Digital Preservation The RFC Series Editor has started initial conversations with the Computer History Museum around archiving digital copies of RFCs. We are currently working on an MoU; once the initial draft is done, it will be reviewed by the RSOC and the IETF Trust before further action is taken. RPC Update - SLA See: https://www.rfc-editor.org/report-summary/ Tool testing related to the xml2rfc v3 format has begun. The RPC is actively testing and providing feedback regarding id2xml. In addition, the RPC is evaluating how the existing tools handle UTF-8 characters.

8. Internet Consolidation
Jari Arkko suggested that the IAB might want to pay attention to trends around Internet consolidation. Brian Trammell noted that many of the moves towards consolidation are driven by economic factors rather than technical factors, but that it may be worth studying to see if there are any assumptions about the architecture of the Internet that no longer hold true.
Ted Hardie suggested that Jari Arkko write up a description of what information he is looking for and send it to the different IAB Programs, noting that different Programs would likely give different answers.
