2. IAB Virtual Retreat Planning
The IAB discussed planning for their virtual retreat during the week of 2020-06-01. The breakout group leaders should send their scheduling requests to Cindy Morgan by 1400 UTC on 2020-05-28. Cindy Morgan will schedule the sessions in Webex and add them to the IAB calendar.
Tommy Pauly asked how the retreat materials would be archived. After a brief discussion, Mirja Kühlewind suggested that each breakout group use whatever is easiest for them (e.g. Etherpad, wiki, Google doc) during the retreat itself, and then archive those materials linked from the retreat wiki page once the retreat is over.
3. ETSI Liaison Work
Zhenbin Li suggested that the IETF might want to consider trying to establish a formal liaison with ETSI, noting a concern that there might be overlap between work in the IETF TEAS WG and the ETSI Industry Specification Group on Zero touch network and Service Management (ZSM).
Mirja Kühlewind noted that even without a formal liaison relationship, ETSI and IETF can still send liaison statements back and forth.
Alissa Cooper added that as far as she is aware, the current informal setup has been working well, and asked if something had changed.
Zhenbin Li agreed to follow up with Deborah Brungard and the Routing Area Directors about whether there is need for a formal liaison relationship with ETSI, and report back to the IAB.
4. ICANN Root Zone Evolution Review Committee (RZERC)
Cindy Morgan noted that Jim Reid’s current term on the ICANN Root Zone Evolution Review Committee (RZERC) will end at ICANN 69. Jim has served in this role for the past 4 years and cannot seek another term because of the term limits laid out in RFC 8128.
Wes Hardaker will review the timeline and draft text for the call for nominations for the ICANN Root Zone Evolution Review Committee (RZERC) appointment, after which time Cindy Morgan will send out the call for nominations.
–Begin ICANN RZERC Report, Jim Reid–
RZERC's received two proposals. One from Verisign is to consider the introduction of ZONEMD RR(s) into the root - once the current I-D has become an RFC of course. The rationale for this is to have extra protection for copies of the root zone that might not get distributed using TSIG-validated axfrs: think hyperlocal roots. The other is from RSSAC and is to consider the signing of root- servers.net, the zone that has the authoritative DNS data about the root servers themselves. No decisions were taken on next steps about either proposal. Both are felt to be in scope for RZERC. Though its role is likely to be identifying which parties need to be involved in the discussion and what their roles and responsibilities should/could be. It doesn’t seem likely that RZERC itself will do the heavy lifting (like analysis of the operational impact) or undertake much outreach on either proposal. [It] may well just act as a conduit or focus point for others to supply information. The consensus on the [conference] call that just ended was “yes, this stuff’s in scope for us - let’s consider what the next steps might be”.

5. ICANN NomCom Appointment
The IAB agreed on the timeline for the appointment of the IETF delegate to the ICANN NomCom. Cindy Morgan will send out a call for feedback on the incumbent.
6. Executive Session: RFC Editor Future Development Program Chair Appointment
The IAB discussed the appointment of an additional chair or chairs for the RFC Editor Future Development Program in an executive session.
