RFC SERIES OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE (RSOC) June 8, 2016 RSOC Meeting Reported by: Naveen Khan, IETF Secretariat ATTENDEES --------------------------------- Nevil Brownlee Heather Flanagan (RSE, non-voting) Joel Halpern Tony Hansen Joe Hildebrand Bob Hinden Naveen Khan (scribe, non-voting) Adam Roach Robert Sparks (IAB Lead) REGRETS --------------------------------- Sarah Banks (RSOC Chair) Ray Pelletier (IAOC Liaison, non-voting) MINUTES --------------------------------- 0. Review of minutes The minutes from the 23 May 2016 meeting were approved. 1. Agenda bash An item on the ISE Succession Plan was added to the agenda by Nevil Brownlee. 2. Project status 2.1. Format Heather Flanagan reported that there is pressure get this done, but due to day job pressures, people have fewer volunteer hours to dedicate to this project. Joe Hildebrand reported that the bigger issue of display references has been resolved. The smaller issue of the RFC number being different in the front and back-end reference element is in the process of being worked out, and will be fixed in the prep tool. Any opinions on this can be discussed directly with Joe. Joe Hildebrand is currently going through draft-iab-html-rfc to make sure everything is correct, and expects the draft will be done soon. Heather Flanagan reported that the statement of work for CSS has gone out. Julian Reschke had comments about whether CSS can be applied to a PDF document. This has been in discussion by the tools and design teams. 2.2. Stats & Metrics Heather Flanagan reported that Alice Russo is doing the testing for this. The focus is mostly on details such as notations on graphs that are unreadable in certain browsers. This project should be completed by the end of June, and a note will be sent to the TMC to sign off on the work so that the contractor can be paid. Adam Roach noted that there is a dedicated web compatibility team for this that can be consulted if needed. Robert Sparks has requested to see this document. 2.3. Digital Signatures Heather Flanagan reported that a draft of the public-facing FAQ was sent to the RSOC. Heather is working on the details of this document with Russ Housley. Heather and Russ are in agreement that this should be a high-level document, and the details of the operations should be left out of the public document. Heather reported that it will not be necessary for anyone to hold copies of the keys because we are protected under contract against issues. Best practices for key management also suggest that keys like this should not be copied. If anyone would like to discuss the best practices in more detail, they can contact Russ or Heather. Russ will be asked to join the RSOC call in August to continue this conversation. 3. RFC Stream design team Joe Hildebrand reported that no further discussion on this has been made since the IAB retreat. Joe does not foresee this being an agenda item at IETF 96; the discussion on this will be more long-term. 4. Plans for IETF 96 There are no format BOFs or tutorials planned for Berlin. Heather Flanagan is hoping to have the format RFP out and some bids back to review by IETF 96. A Doodle poll will be sent to the ROSC to find time to discuss the bids once the agenda comes out. If no time is decided, Thursday lunch at the IETF meeting will be the fallback time as per usual. There will be no RSOC retreat at IETF 96. 5. ISE Succession Plan Nevil Brownlee reported that he was asked to create a succession plan for the ISE role once his contract is over. Key points of this plan are: what the stream does, how much work is involved in doing it, and the position description. Nevil Brownlee sent a document that details this work to the RSOC. Nevil pointed out that the key to this position is to know how the different parts of the IETF infrastructure work, and the relationship between the independent stream and IANA. Another important part to this role is being able to manage a relationship with the reviewers, as two technical reviews are required for independent stream documents. Although the workload fluctuates, there is a time commitment to the role. Nevil said that he would be happy to continue in the role for a year after his contract ends, but after that he will be officially retired. Nevil asked what RSOC thinks the next steps should be. Joel Halpern said that the IAB has to be the one to make the call regarding who is responsible for this search. RSOC should give Nevil feedback on the document between now and Berlin. Robert Sparks will bring this up with the IAB face-to-face in Berlin. Robert suggested not detailing the position description too much. 6. AOB Heather Flanagan will be at TNC2016 in Prague the week of June 13 for her identity federation work, and to attend the IETF update to that community. She will be available via email, IM, and Skype that week, but will be on vacation and mostly offline the week of June 27.
