3. IETF Evolution

Lee Howard asked if the discussion on IETF evolution should be deferred to Prague. Alissa Cooper asked what the desired end goal of the discussion would be. Lee replied that he was not sure yet; he would like the IAB to talk about whether there are ways to improve the outputs of the IETF.

Alissa Cooper noted that one piece of that discussion might overlap with an IESG discussion on semantic versioning and structures for IETF specifications. The IAB agreed; Alissa will add this topic to the agenda for the joint IAB/IESG lunch on Sunday in Prague.

The IAB agreed on the following coverage for BOFs and proposed RGs at IETF 99:

Ted Hardie reported that people have been found to lead the discussion on “3GPP & IETF Collaboration on 5G” on Tuesday at lunchtime in Prague.

7. draft-iab-marnew-report-00

Brian Trammell asked the IAB to please send comments on draft-iab-marnew-report to Natasha Rooney and CC the IAB. The document needs a new revision before it can go out for community review.


The IAB briefly discussed the FCC NOI on IETF STIR and ATIS SHAKEN, and whether the IAB should respond. Robert Sparks agreed to draft text for a response and send it to the IAB for review.

9. EName Workshop

Ted Hardie reported that several additional conflicts came to light after the EName Workshop call for papers went out. The IAB agreed that the workshop program committee should find new dates for the workshop and resend the call for papers.

10. IETF-ICANN Cooperation

The IAB will invite Jonne Soininen to the Monday breakfast meeting in Prague to discuss the IETF-ICANN relationship. Jonne does not plan to stand for another term as the IETF’s liaison to ICANN, and would like to help set the expectations for future candidates.

Ted Hardie noted that the ICANN CEO is looking for ways to foster technical engagement between the ICANN and the IETF, given that not all of the ICANN constituencies participate in the IETF. He asked the IAB to think about that before the meeting in Prague.

11. Community Coordination Group Co-chair Confirmation

The IAB confirmed Russ Housley as co-chair of the Community Coordination Group (CCG). Ted Hardie will follow up with Russ on this.
