2. IAB Mailing Lists

Jared Mauch sent email to the following lists to let them know that the IAB intends to close them in 7 days, and that future discussion can be taken to the architecture-discuss list:


Tommy Pauly reported that there was some feedback on the architecture-discuss list about the proposed IAB sergeant-at-arms policy. He suggested updating the text to add clarifications around what the role will be and to ensure there is a clear policy to point to if moderation is ever needed. Tommy will update the text and send it out to the IAB for review.

Mirja Kühlewind noted that the description for the architecture-discuss list should be updated to clarify that it is an IAB list. Mirja will work with Tommy Pauly on an updated list description.

3. IAB Virtual Retreat Planning

Mirja Kühlewind reported that she has only received a few responses to the SWOT/PEST survey, and asked everyone to respond to it before the next IAB meeting.

Alissa Cooper said that the IAB should block out time when the IAB will be expected to be on calls during the week of 2020-06-01.

Mirja Kühlewind replied that she is hoping to have one or two sync-up meetings with the full IAB during that week, with smaller groups breaking out and scheduling their own calls to work on the topics that come out of the SWOT/PEST analysis. The IAB agreed to block out 1330 UTC and 2130 UTC on 2020-06-01, 2020-06-03, and 2020-06-05 and decide later which of those slots will be used. Cindy Morgan will update the IAB calendar.

4. ETSI Non-IP Group

Alissa Cooper asked whether the IAB wanted to engage further on the ETSI Non-IP Group. The IAB agreed that there was no reason to engage at this time, but Alissa Cooper will continue to monitor the group’s activities.

5. Community Coordination Group (CCG) Appointment

Stephen Farrell reported that the incumbent is willing to stand again for the Community Coordination Group (CCG) appointment.

Alissa Cooper suggested that the IAB check with the IETF Trust to see if the Trust is considering any changes that would affect the CCG. Stephen Farrell will follow up with the Trust and report back to the IAB.

6. Next IAB Meeting

The next IAB teleconference will be on 2020-05-13 at 1330 UTC.
