Review of Project Status

The IASA timeline.

Lucy Lynch described her initial draft of the IASA work tasks, which have been placed on the private Transition Team Wiki.

Kurtis Lindqvist agreed to review these drafts for the Team.

Lucy suggested that the IAD might need assistance with the technical aspects of meeting planning, such as network services. The Team agreed that this was a good idea.

Kurtis Lindqvist described his draft of the principles to be used to review applications for the IAD position. These have also been posted for Transition Team review. He pointed out that the position is in the United States, and that it will therefore be necessary to obtain work permits if the successful candidate is not a U.S. citizen and does not have the necessary visas or permits.

The Team discussed Lindqvist's draft principles and their relative importance, concluding that the IAD will require substantial leadership and negotiation skills, and that this requirement is likely to outweigh technical skills and formal education.

The Team discussed the production of Minutes for public distribution. It was agreed that a first draft of these would be produced by the scribe for approval or modification by the time of the next meeting or phone call.

The Team then discussed the draft timeline prepared by Harald Alvestrand (who was unable to make the call).

Leslie Daigle pointed out that any timeline at present will be more a dependency list than a strict timelines.

Lucy Lynch pointed out that the IETF meeting schedule and related deadlines (such as Internet Draft submission deadlines) set some hard constraints on the timeline, particularly with the approach of IETF 62.

Lynn St. Amour described the planning for a combined meeting of the Boards of CNRI and ISOC, with initial indications being that the Boards preferred to wait until the BCP was approved. Steve Crocker urged that the Boards meet as soon as is practical.

The Transition Team discussed the suggestion of Robert Kahn that IETF Intellectual Property (IP) be held in a trust to be set up, with IAOC members as trustees. While there was no resolution, it was recognized that the IETF does not presently have the legal standing to own property, and so this issue does need to be addressed.

Lynn St. Amour urged that the Team make it clear to all interested parties that the remaining tasks will take months to finish (as the IAOC has to be set up and the new IAOC members will then have to review and approve various proposals and contracts). Leslie Daigle reminded the team that the process allows for a minimally constituted IAOC to be appointed quickly, without necessarily completing the NomCom process (i.e., the IAOC can start before NomCom finishes).

The Team discussed inviting Mark Foster or Robert Kahn to participate in a meeting to explain their concerns and point of view.

A change in the regular meeting time was discussed, as the current time conflicts with some Team members other obligations. It was decided to make a decision after discussion on the mailing list, in order to allow Harald Alvestrand to comment on any new time.
