Session 1


  • Daniel Migault
  • Geoff Huston
  • Peter Koch
  • Russ Housley
  • Scott Mansfield
  • Stephan Wenger
  • Tim Wicinski
  • Tommy, Wes and Deborah


cross area group population

  • stephan doesn't have a good replacement
    • other mpeg members do come to the ietf, but their devotion is to mpeg not to the IETF
    • 3gpp2 doesn't exist any longer, and imtc which has dissolved into another organization
  • some groups have really nothing to do, so replacement isn't critical
  • should some liaisonships be dropped?

other topics

  • what do we do about organizations taking IETF stuff and misusing it
    • yang modules in particular are a real problem with many external mistakes, etc
    • can the liaison tool be used for external review requests for things like this
    • this is compounded by the fact that many external documents are closed and not available for review
    • Does ITU-T need an additional liaison manager in order to help review
    • explain to the other organization they may need help in developing specifications and what may happen if they develop in proprietary viewerships
