RFC SERIES OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE (RSOC) May 23, 2016 RSOC Meeting Reported by: Cindy Morgan, IETF Secretariat ATTENDEES --------------------------------- Heather Flanagan (RSE, non-voting) Joel Halpern Joe Hildebrand Bob Hinden Cindy Morgan (Scribe, non-voting) Adam Roach Robert Sparks (Lead) REGRETS --------------------------------- Sarah Banks (Chair) Nevil Brownlee Tony Hansen Ray Pelletier (IAOC Liaison, non-voting) MINUTES --------------------------------- 0. Review of minutes The minutes of the 9 March 2016 teleconference and the 7 April 2016 meeting were approved. 1. Agenda bash An item on the W3C Digital Publishing Interest Group was added to the agenda under AOB. 2. Project status 2.1 Format Heather Flanagan reported that most of the RFC format drafts are done, but she is still waiting for updates to draft-iab-xml2rfc, draft-iab- html-rfc, draft-iab-rfc-css, and draft-iab-rfcv3-preptool. Joe Hildebrand said that he expects to have the outstanding issues resolved within the next two weeks. Heather noted that the sooner these documents can be approved, the better; she would like to send out the RFPs before the European summer holiday break. 2.2. Stats & Metrics Heather Flanagan reported that that statistics and metics project is wrapping up; the RPC will check to make sure the additional tables required in the database do not affect any of the existing scripts. John Levine is also working with the RPC team to integrate some of this code into the RFC Editor Wordpress site for public, automated reports. 2.3. Digital Preservation Heather Flanagan reported that she is still waiting to hear back from the Royal Library of Sweden on her question about identifiers. She has also reached out to Stephen Farrell to see if the Trinity College library is interested in having the RFC series in their archive; Stephen has made inquiries and is waiting to hear back from the librarians. 2.4. Digital Signatures The RSOC discussed digital signatures on RFCs. Bob Hinden asked how the keys would be handled for this. Heather Flanagan replied that there would be three physical keys (likely on USB drives), held by senior editorial staff of the RPC. Robert Sparks asked if those would be the only copies of the keys. Bob Hinden asked if having all of the keys in the hands of employees of the RFC contractor makes sense. Robert suggested that Ray Pelletier (as IAD) could also hold a key. Heather Flanagan will check what the process is for getting the keys, and report back to the RSOC. Robert Sparks requested that the RFC Editor's key management practices be written down for internal use. Heather Flanagan will draft some text and send it to Robert for review. 3. Outreach 3.1. AMS/IETF, IAB, and IAOC chair/IAD meeting Heather Flanagan reported that she met with the AMS partners and IT staff, the IETF Tools Management Committee Chair, the IAD, some ISOC staff, and the IAB, IETF, and IAOC chairs earlier this month. The tools discussion in particular was very useful in making sure that everyone is up to speed on what is happening in the RFC Editor arena. The following week, Heather Flanagan attended the IESG retreat, where the topic of the number of authors allowed on an RFC was discussed again. The IESG did not reach consensus about making any changes to the number of authors allowed. 3.2. Society for Scholarly Publishing Heather Flanagan will be presenting on standards development and standards in publishing at the upcoming Society for Scholarly Publishing meeting. Her attendance at this conference is self-funded. 3.3. STM Association Heather Flanagan will run a panel on identity and access management at the upcoming International Association of Scientific, Technical, and Medical Publishers meeting in London. 4. AOB: W3C Digital Publishing Interest Group participation Heather Flanagan reported that she is participating in the Digital Publishing Interest Group, and currently holds the pen on the group's use case document. This document has been in the spotlight recently as a result of discussions around a proposed merger of the W3C and the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF), the SDO responsible for the EPUB standard. A copy of the first draft of the use case doc is online <http://w3c.github.io/dpub-pwp-ucr/>. There is a virtual face- to-face meeting this week that will focus on the use case document.
