2.3. RFC Editor Liaison Report
–Begin RFC Editor Liaison Report, Heather Flanagan–
RSE * RFC Format Testing of the various tools associated with the new format continues. Alice Russo (RPC), Megan Ferguson (RPC), Jim Schaad (developer), Robert Sparks (PM), and Heather Flanagan (RSE) met in August to discuss details around svgchk, rfclint, and xmldiff. Those tools are feature complete and the developer is now focusing on bug reports. Another meeting will be scheduled in September with Henrik Levkowetz and the RPC testing team to discuss the preptool and publication formatter functionality. See https://trac.tools.ietf.org/tools/ietfdb/wiki/FormatToolsPlan for information on the expected release schedule for the various tools. * GitHub Experiment With the publication of RFC 8446 (TLS 1.3), the first half of the experiment to use GitHub during AUTH48 is complete. The experiment will continue, modified based on what the RPC and the authors found from the first round of interaction, when draft-ietf-rtcweb-jsep-24 is ready AUTH48for . Exactly what will change is still under discussion. For more information on the process being followed, please see: https://www.rfc-editor.org/rse/wiki/doku.php?id=github_auth48_experiment * Planning for 2019 Priorities The RSE and key RPC staff are planning to meet in October to discuss the priority and scope of work in 2019. This is just the first step in identifying and prioritizing RFC Editor efforts; the next steps will be to discuss this with the RSOC, the stream managers, and the community. RPC * https://www.rfc-editor.org/report-summary/ The RPC is not expecting to meet the SLA in Q3. Significant time has been dedicated to both testing new tools and the GitHub experiment, as well as training a new editor, Reuben Esparza, who replaces Dave Fonseca on the RPC team. See the reports page for the latest information on the SLA.

3. Future Tech Plenaries
Melinda Shore reported that the Plenary Planning Program has a meeting next week and will review the current list of proposals. The Program is still looking at decentralized infrastructure as the topic for the plenary in Bangkok.
4. Public IAB Teleconferences
The IAB took an action at their last meeting to review the narrative notes from three previous IAB meetings and mark whether each section could have been discussed in a public session. Ted Hardie noted that there were a couple of topics where there was disagreement amongst those who reviewed the notes.
One area where there was disagreement about whether the conversation could be had in public was the “Future Tech Plenaries” topic. Brian Trammell noted that parts of the discussion (such as plenary topics) could be public, but that there would need to be a way to discuss potential speakers that would not result in a loss of face if a particular speaker was not chosen for a plenary.
Suzanne Woolf noted that in reviewing the transcripts, the IAB had the benefit of hindsight; in real-time making portions of the IAB meetings public would probably result in a change to how the IAB does their work.
Melinda Shore said that if there are topics on an agenda that will not be discussed in public, the IAB should articulate why those discussions require confidentiality. The IAB identified a few potential reasons discussions would require confidentiality:
- Discussions of personnel matters
- Negotiations with other bodies
- Tech chats where the guest was not comfortable speaking to the public
Ted Hardie and Cindy Morgan will propose agendas for the next two IAB meeting that could be split into public and confidential sections. Based on those proposals, the IAB will decide whether to proceed with an experiment to make IAB teleconferences public.
5. Shine Program
The IAB discussed the proposed Shine Program. Christian Huitema said that he sees things falling under a few different categories:
- The perceived loss of privacy
- The asymmetric relationship between users and platforms
- The lack of trust on information
- The ossification of the Internet
Ted Hardie said that he was interested in looking at where these things reinforce each other.
Brian Trammell suggested that holding a workshop on this topic first might make it easier to see where there is energy to do work, and thus easier to organize into an IAB Program. Several people agreed; Christian Huitema and Brian Trammell took an action to write a proposal for a “loss of shine” workshop.
6. ESCAPE Workshop
This item was deferred because Mark Nottingham was unable to attend the meeting.
7. IETF/IEEE 802 Joint Meeting
Ted Hardie asked the IAB to start thinking about agenda topics for the joint meeting between the IAB, IESG, and IEEE 802 leadership that will happen after IETF 103 in Bangkok. Ted asked the IAB to send potential topics out to the list and cc Russ Housley as the liaison manager to IEEE-SA.
8. IDNA Parameter Registry Update
Ted Hardie reported that he and Suzanne Woolf have talked to Patrik Faltstrom about updating the IDNA Parameter Registry. Patrik is currently deciding whether to update the tables now and publish draft-faltstrom-unicode11 as a retrospective of what happened, or to update the document and try to collect more feedback before updating the tables. If the document is used to collect feedback, the IAB should comment quickly, as the longer the tables go without being updated, the more risk there is for breaking interoperability.
