   a one-time interpretation of the eligibility rules that is required
   for the exceptional situation of the cancellation of the in-person
   IETF 107 meeting.  This document only affects the seating of the
   2020-2021 NomCom and any rules that relate to NomCom eligibility or
   process before IETF 108, and does not set a precedent for the future.
