namespace collisions (
fund-replenishment-2018-03-06-en) as reported the last time. The board 
had a meeting with SSAC and the Board and the SSAc will continue to work 
together on the proposal.

GDPR has kept the board, the ICANN organization and the community 
relatively busy. The board adopted a temporary specification on the gTLD 
registration data (
en). The board spent most of its Vancouver workshop on the matter.

2.4. RFC Editor Liaison Report

–Begin RFC Editor Liaison Report, Heather Flanagan–

* Stream experiment
The RFC Series Editor has been actively engaged in the Independent 
Submission Editorial Board and the new rfcplusplus BoF mailing list 
discussing the proposed stream experiment. There are significant 
concerns with the experiment as initially described, and further active 
discussion is expected on the topic.

* Format update
Tool development and testing continues. Current focus is on testing 
xmldiff and on developing the text publication formatter. Nevil 
Brownlee, Jim Schaad, and the Tools Committee are discussing one 
possible gap in the SVG profile described in RFC 7996, based on Tiny 
SVG, where markers (commonly used for arrowheads) are not supported. 
There are other ways to create arrowheads, but they may require some 
education in the community (or adjustment in the SVG checking tool) to 
happen based on the current profile.

See the reports page for the latest information on the SLA.
