IAB and IESG Search for RFC Series Working Group (RSWG) Chairs

The IAB is in the process of approving draft-iab-rfcefdp-rfced-model, which specifies version 3 of the RFC Editor Model. In this model, policy definition is the joint responsibility of the RFC Series Working Group (RSWG), which produces policy proposals, and the RFC Series Approval Board (RSAB), which approves such proposals. As described in Section 3.1.1.3 of the document:

The RSWG shall have two chairs, one appointed by the IESG and the other appointed by the IAB.  When the RSWG is formed, the chair appointed by the IESG shall serve for a term of one (1) year and the chair appointed by the IAB shall serve for a term of two (2) years; thereafter, chairs shall serve for a term of two (2) years, with no term limits on renewal.

The IAB and the IESG are looking for a diverse pool of chair candidates, and therefore are issuing a joint call for nominations (including self-nominations) for the RSWG chairs. If you are interested or would like to nominate someone, please send a message with the name and email address of the nominee to execd@iab.org. The deadline for nominations is 23:59 UTC on 2022-04-18 2022-05-03.

In a second step, all nominees will then be asked to provide the following information to the IAB and IESG (self nominations may already include this information in the initial email):

  1. Full name and contact information. Include your employer or the organizations that would provide financial support for you (if any).
  2. Please provide a statement confirming your willingness to serve as RSWG chair and ability to devote an appropriate level of time to activities associated with the position.
  3. Please provide a brief biography outlining your relevant experience and background.
  4. Please provide a statement of interests, views on the RFC Series and its Model, goals as a RSWG Chair and motivation to serve as a RSWG Chair.
  5. Any further information that is relevant to the work of the IAB and IESG in considering your nomination, e.g., potential conflicts of interest.

In a third step, the IAB and IESG will solicit community feedback on the willing candidates before making a decision. Each body will independently pick one co-chair.

On behalf of the IAB and the IESG,
Mirja Kühlewind, IAB Chair
Lars Eggert, IETF Chair

Call for Nominations for the ICANN Root Server System Governance Working Group (GWG)

On behalf of the IETF, the IAB provides two technical experts to the ICANN Root Server System Governance Working Group (GWG). The current appointees are Ted Hardie and Geoff Huston. Ted has asked to step down from this role; the IAB thanks him for his service.

The IAB is asking the community for a volunteer to serve on the GWG. If you are interested, please send a short email message to execd@iab.org and iab-chair@iab.org with your motivation and information concerning your familiarity with the IETF and the Root Server System (RSS) as well as the other standards organizations represented on the GWG. The deadline for nominations is Monday, 2022-04-04 at 23:59 UTC.

The IAB is looking for a diverse pool of candidates. The selected candidate will serve on the GWG on personal title; however, the IAB will be looking for candidates who have an understanding of the interests of the technical community.

This appointment does not have a fixed term; however, work of the GWG is expected to conclude once the final model (“GWG Model”) of cooperation and governance for the RSS has been delivered and the RSSAC, ICANN Board, ICANN community, IETF/IAB, and RSOs have considered its outcomes.

If you are willing to be considered or would like to nominate someone else for one of the GWG positions, please send an email message to execd@iab.org and iab-chair@iab.org by 23:59 UTC on Monday, 2022-04-04.

IAB appoints Eliot Lear as Independent Submission Editor (ISE)

Back in October, Adrian Farrel announced his plans to step down as the Independent Submission Editor (ISE). Over the past four years, Adrian has been a real asset to our community in this role, and the Internet Architecture Board thanks him for his service.

After a public search, the IAB is pleased to announce the appointment of Eliot Lear as Independent Submission Editor (ISE) for a two-year term.

The IAB was fortunate to have a strong pool of candidates to choose from. The IAB would like to thank everyone who put their name forward as a candidate for this position, as well as those who provided feedback during this process.

RFC Editor Model (Version 3) out for community review

The Internet Architecture Board (IAB) is requesting comment on an update to the model for organizing the RFC Editor function.

The RFC Editor comprises the set of functions that serve the Internet technical community in editing, publishing, and archiving RFCs. Discussion of changes to how the RFC Editor function is managed, staffed, and overseen have been part of the IAB RFC Editor Future Development (rfcefdp) program.

On 2022-02-07, the IAB issued a Call for Comments on RFC Editor Model (Version 3), which is being considered for publication as an Informational RFC on the IAB stream to specify an update of the RFC Editor Model. The model defines two high-level tasks related to the RFC Series. First, policy definition for the series is the joint responsibility of two newly created bodies. The RFC Series Working Group (RSWG) produces policy proposals and the RFC Series Approval Board (RSAB) approves such proposals. Second, policy implementation is primarily the responsibility of the RFC Production Center (RPC) as contractually overseen by the IETF Administration LLC.

The Call for Comment will last until 2022-03-07.

Please send comments to rfced-future@iab.org and iab@iab.org.

This document obsoletes RFC 8728. This document updates RFC 7841, RFC 8729, and RFC 8730.

This IAB Call for Comment is running concurrently with the IETF Last Call for the following related IETF-stream documents:
