4. “Trust in Internet Entities” Statements

Melinda Shore reported that she sent an initial draft of the protocol designer version of the “Trust in Internet Entities” Statement to Wes Hardaker, and that she hopes to have a version of this ready for IAB review within the next few weeks.

5. IAB Retreat Planning

The IAB reviewed potential topics for the IAB retreat agenda and began assigning people to lead the discussions. Ted Hardie and Cindy Morgan will put together a draft of the retreat agenda for the IAB to review.

The IAB concluded that one of the potential topics, “IAB lore for newbies,” would be better handled as an informal discussion over lunch where new IAB members could ask questions. Cindy Morgan will put together a primer for new members about where to find information that is already documented in the IAB wikis.

6. draft-ietf-iasa2-rfc4844-bis-02

The IAB will review draft-ietf-iasa2-rfc4844-bis; the document will be added to the IAB’s 2019-05-01 agenda to decide if it is ready for community review.

7. Plenary Planning Program

The IAB agreed to retain outgoing IAB members Allison Mankin, Gabriel Montenegro, and Suzanne Woolf as non-IAB members of the Plenary Planning Program.

Melinda Shore reported that at the 2019-04-16 Plenary Planning Program meeting, they discussed what the goal of having a technical talk at the plenary should be. They also talk about doing a series of talks on privacy-related topics. Alissa Cooper cautioned that having several technical plenaries in a row on the same topic will bore the people who are not interested in that topic.

The IAB meeting moved into executive session, and the IAB discussed potential future speakers.
