    *     recording starts.
* _[07.06]_ Administrivia + announcements
    * Agenda.

        - Agenda is approved. No concerns raised.

    * Last Call Minutes
         - Last Call Minutes are approved. No concerns raised.
     * Announcement
        *'e' has been removed from the charter.
        * RFC 7554 is published! TSCH.
        * Announcement. New ETSI Group. IP6 ISG. Industry Specification Work.

* _[07.08]_ Status for draft-ietf-6tisch-architecture
    * Last Call issues completed.
    * Shepherd writeup taking place.

* _[07.10]_ Status for draft-ietf-6tisch-minimal
    * Xavi has been working on restructuring the minimal draft. Comments from
    Pat and Tero not to reproduce exactly the IEEE802.15.4e standards. *
    reworked sections 4 and 5. Pointed to set of example in Section 10. * TODO:
    provide a bytestream for each example, to simplify work. * Xavi presents
    new section 4.
        * text same as before, explains the configuration for the EBs in minimal
        * we refer to section 10.1, where example can be found
        * provides description of what the reason for each IE is
    * XAvi presents new Section 5
        * adds section on ACK/NACK IE
        * added several examples in section 10
        * indicated in LSB.
        * indicates that IEEE802.15.4 has precedence
    * example:
        * IEs in EBs
    * Thomas suggests to add a sentence above each subsection to describe the
    structure of the examples, missing how the document is organized * Xavi
    agrees, todo for Xavi * Thomas and Pascal thank Tero for suggesting that
    section and reviewing
* _[07.16]_ plugtest and hackathon news and dates
    * news on the hackathon
    * Talking to ETSI to see if Hackathon can be happening in the same time.
    * Friday 17 to Sunday 19 of July a room is rented at the IETF hotel for
    plugTest * Plugtest is an interop test. which requires several sessions to
    happen during different times. * The hackathon is a more informal event
    where people can meet to work on 6tisch related stuff. * Proposal :
    plugtest 17 and 18 and hackathon and 19. ETSI allows us to use the room for
    the hackathon. * Need to do:
          - get an entry in the hackathon related to our work at 6tisch
          - have a list of scenes and copy paste that list in the hackathon
          wiki page.
     * Dominique B. is interested on joining the hackathon.
     * OpenWSN and OpenMote HW platform want to join too
     * Univ. Bari team to work on security.
     TODO: Call for themes in the hackathon during this week.
     * 6TiSCH WG will be requested to be early in the week. There is absolutely
     no guarantee that this happen. * Agenda is published 3 weeks before the
     event. * June 5th is the deadline for that request.

    * Hackthon is informal but a list of themes would be useful.


* _[07.25]_ COMI and CoAP draft
    * Michel Veillette presents COMI and COAP Draft
    * Issue of teh day is with collisions with the base-64 5bytes hash that
    encodes the data node path * Aligned with RestCONF/ provides the same kind
    of services but for constrained devices. Object are designed using the YANG
    modeling language. * uses CoAP instead of http * uses DTLS instead of TLS *
    Data Node ID in RestCONF is compressed using a hash valued. Encoded in
    BASE64 in the URI. In Binary in CBOR (4Byte) * COMI is based on RESTCONF *
    http:://cbor.me  site to convert from plain bytes to CBOR. * Yang hash
    clashes: can happen because two different sets of data can produce the same
    hash * Prob of clash is small but they can happen. * In the same module
    clashes can be detected * From different modules there can be collisions
    (with low prob.) * in draft v6 solves that having a rehash list (lookup
    table) where resources are remapped in case their hash collides. * Servers
    offer mechanism to retrieve clash lists. * list are very small. *Several
    alternatives to deal with clashes. Using a name and a select clause in the
    query to specify which resource is accessed. It introduces select overhead.
    * Other solution (in total 4) * TW: Asks, if this requires comments. and
    proposes a new solution
         -as a client add the underscore to the resource that has the collision.
    * Peter V.S. Have for large COMI Clients to use the relabeling solution but
    if the nodes are constrained, the other presented solutions apply. * Thomas
    agrees; Thomas asks if it is by design that all the hashes are static? *
    Michel Veillete: List of resources can be dynamic.   THe writer of the
    module will resolve the collisions (the assumption is that within the
    module won't be collisions) * Andy: in RestCONF. In JSOn if there are
    siblings in the tree with the same local name, the server needs to qualify
    which module is each query coming from. If there is a collision you need
    the full extended name instead of the local name. This only when the
    collision happens.

* _[07.59]_ Rechartering
    * Rechartering on going.
    * Minimal
      - security, as there is no consensus  on the new proposed text we will
      move to the previous text as approved in Dallas with the exception that a
      new phrase will be added indicating what is K1 for interop purposes. -
      ACTION: FInish the final amendments to the draft and send a pointer to
      the ML from bitbucket. Wait 1 week for consensus and ship to the IESG.
    * 6top and coap drafts are not ready yet. CoAP is bounded to the COMI work.
    6top interface needs more work. * Rechartering:
         - Rene: says we have a lot of work done in security and proposes to
         keep progressing.
     * Dynamic scheduling -- 6top, OTF, Archie 2.
      *Security in the context of 6top.
      *CHW:Neighbor discovery for 6tisch?
      *PTis part of the original architecture. Do we need more?
       * track organization and operation.
* _[08.09]_ AOB
    * No Other B.

        -hackaton: Sedat thinks to go to an informal hackathon event. We cannot
        find any slot allocated. There will be hackathon 19th of July

* _[08.05]_ Meeting ends
