Abstract

   This is the Workshop Report for the IETF Administrative Support
   Activity 2.0 (IASA 2.0) Virtual Workshops, held on 28 February 2017
   at 1100 UT and 1600 UT.  The original IETF Administrative Support
   Activity (IASA) was created ten years ago, and since has been subject
   to some reflection.  In the intervening years, there has been
   considerable change in the necessary tasks of IETF administration and
   in the world around the IETF, and in how the IETF raises funds and
   finances its work.  The IASA 2.0 process seeks to address which
   administrative arrangements will best support the IETF going forward.

1.  Introduction

   The IETF Administrative Support Activity (IASA) arrangements were
   created more than ten years ago, when the IETF initially took charge
   of its own administration [RFC4071].  In the intervening years, there
   has been considerable change in the tasks of IETF administration and
   in the world around the IETF [I-D.daigle-iasa-retrospective] and in
   how the IETF raises funds and finances its work
   [I-D.arkko-ietf-finance-thoughts].

   In 2016, IETF leadership began a discussion to review and possibly
   rework administrative arrangements at the IETF, dubbed the IETF
   Administrative Support Activity 2.0 project [Arkko-2016].  The IASA
   2.0 process seeks to address what administrative arrangements that
   will best support the IETF going forward.

   To make changes, the IETF community first needs to understand the
