    * **Thomas** goes through Note Well

* _[07.06]_ Agenda bashing
    * Approve agenda.
        * No issues raised. Agenda approved.
    * Approval of the minutes last call.
        * No issues raised. Minutes approved.
    * draft-minimal is shipped to IESG, congrats to Xavi and Kris
    * Yokohama agenda published
        * 6tisch meeting on Thursday afternoon
    * Announcing 2nd 6tisch plugtest in 2-4 Feb 2016, Paris

* _[07.08]_ Sublayer draft
    * Xavi Vilajosana: Just republished. The sublayer offers mechanism to
    allocate nodes on a distributed way but the policy to do that is kept
        * New terms defined, including Objective Function with an identifier to
        enable multiple. * 6top protocol is a messaging protocol to allocate
        cells between peers. * simple protocols * Presenting the protocol
        stack. request proposes a number of cells and response provides the
        ones selected. * new draft presents messages and packet formats in a
        fashion similar to 15.4 information elements * interesting is that each
        message has an op code indicating command and response-code * list of
        cells are described by channel offset / slot offset * OTF is one
        possible Objective function. Codes would be allocated by IANA
    * Pascal Thubert: is the intelligence only on the requester?
    * Thomas Watteyne: there is a minimum intelligence on the receiver since it
    manages at least collisions. * Pat Kinney: On unmanaged. I undertsand that
    they can be used without being assigned. You probably want a lot less than
    128 unmanaged. Maybe 2 or 3 for experimentations. * Thomas Watteyne: agree
    let  us have an action item * Zhuo Chen: asking clarification on the 2
    dslot frames * Xavi Vilajosana: We have 2 slot frames. The first is for
    minimal. The second is managed by 6top and that is where slots installed by
    6top will be. There may be other slotframes. * Thomas Watteyne: This is an
    example that guarantees that we have bandwidth to boot with minimal.
        * Simple for interop. But just an example that is recommended. The OF
        would define this.
    * Nicola: is there a requirement of the slotframe relative sizes
    * Thomas Watteyne:  You can always figure when slotframe 0 is talking so no
    * Nicola: Why term OF? anything to optimize
    * Thomas Watteyne:  No, name mimics RPL, maybe not the right thing
    * Nicola: Why 2 bytes for slot offset?
    * Thomas Watteyne: Comes from 4e to enable other PHYs
    * Pat Kinney: agreed with Thomas. The standards guarantees that lowest slot
    frame has prority * Thomas Watteyne: Yes, collision will cause slotframe 1
    to loose an opportunity to send to it looks bad
         * draft says we want a group ID and a payload. Asking Pat Kinney if we
         can get an IE, a subIE or something assigner to us or IETF. Hiw can we
         get that?
    * Pat Kinney: understands and agrees. This requires a letter from IANA to
    Bob Heile.
         * I see enormous advantage for a group ID to be assigned. We ned to
         start communicating on this one
    * Thomas Watteyne: will talk between chairs and follow up with IANA
    * Xavi Vilajosana: Suggest to associate an OF number to the OTF draft
    * Diego: we'll meet and will discuss renaming. I agree
    * Randy Turner: the term is used a lot. Make sure it is the correct term.
    People might have assumptions * Pascal Thubert: also disagree with the 6
    that has a very wide scope. Should narrow to 6TiSCH * Thomas: Aggressive
    deadlines for interop in February; We need to stabilize 6top and OTF by end
    2015 to enable coding the stuff.

* _[07.08]_  Security draft
    * Michael not joined yet

* _[07.42]_ Rechartering
    * Pascal summarize
       * removed the "e" in 802.15.4e
       * added 3 new work items:
          * OTF
          * secure bootstrap
          * define what a track is and DETNET requirements

       * we don't want to distract the work on OTF, but for the people who
       don't work on OTF.
        * Pascal thanks Anand for review of 6tisch-4detnet

       * Idea is to push the new charter rapidly
       * WG chairs and AD will work on new charter
       * charter is contract with IESG, milestone and non milestone documents.
       * Interop guidelines and useful sustaining documents.

    * Question in the Charter. "For IP traffic". Pascal votes to maintain IP
    traffic in opposition to remove IP.

    * It is safe to keep the OTF activity close to the IP routing.
    * Pat Kinney: suggests to add a footnote. Non-ip traffic is not precluded
    from that effort in the future.
      (aiming to support other types of traffic)
    * Pascal: we want to say that for the time being we work on IP traffic.
    This does not imply that we will not work on other types of traffic in the
    future. * Pat Kinney: Agrees, he is worried about people thinking that the
    affirmation restricts other types of traffic. * ChongGang: Limited to the
    IP traffic? I think the work can be applied to both IP and non-ip traffic.
    *    Also clarify that the operation we target is one-hop, that is hop by
    hop negotiation. * Maria Rita: suggests to remove the paragraph at the end
    but let a little text indicating that we will particiPat Kinneye/support
    interop events. Remove some details as it is too long. * Pascal: if we
    charter to do the security work do we we have a critical masss in the
    security working team to move forward on that? * Rene: not immediately but
    in 3month time or so he can try to rechart the sub group. * Michael
    RIchardson: are we going to have a phone conference the 23rd of October. If
    so I can join it and discuss about the new activity in the join process. *
    Pascal: suggest to close the security ML and move discussion at the ML. *
    Michael agrees * Malisa: the WG is divided in different directions. It is
    not that the group is not finding the right work force. * Michael: Ask
    Malisa to send an email to the ML indicating the 3 security approaches he
    sees. * Malisa agrees. * Chonggang: track requirement, detnet requirements.
    Can you give some more advice on how to move forward? He send an email
    about that. Can we move forward. * Action: pascal to review the draft and
    push to move this forward. * Malisa: quite some discussions between
    security, not problem of workforce, but agree on direction * Michael:
    please send to ML
