On Appeals of IESG and Area Director Actions and Decisions

Date: 4 Oct 2007

The IESG re-affirms that its reading of RFC 2026 is that any action made by an Area Director or the IESG may by made the subject of the conflict resolution mechanisms set out in Section 6.5 of RFC 2026. The IESG further wishes to highlight that the primary aim of the appeals mechanism set out there is to resolve conflicts and move the IETF as a whole towards consensus, and it urges all participants to approach them in that light.
