Description of Working Group:

The LDAPv3 "core" specification is RFC 2251-2256 and 2829-2831.
The purpose of this working group is to shepherd these RFCs
through the Internet Standard process.

The group will deliver revised LDAPv3 specifications suitable for
consideration as a Draft Standard. This work will be based upon RFCs
2251-2256, 2829-2831.

The group will deliver a document detailing IANA considerations
for LDAP suitable for consideration as a Best Current Practice.

The group will deliver an applicability statement defining LDAPv3.
This work will be based upon draft-hodges-ldapv3-as-00.txt.

The following areas are out of scope:
- "LDAPv4"

- All LDAP Extensions (LDAPext) excepting StartTLS.

- LDAP Replication (LDUP)- LDAP non-"core" Schema

- Connection-less LDAP (LDAPext)

    Current Meeting Report

    ldapbis WG meeting minutes, IETF 64, Vancouver
    November 10, 2005
    RL "Bob" Morgan, scribe
    The meeting was called to order at 15:16.
    The main agenda item is:  recharter or conclude?  The chairs propose to 
    conclude upon the publishing of the outstanding documents, and not to 
    recharter.  There was no objection to this from the attendees.  This 
    position will be proposed to the WG mailing list for confirmation.
    Kurt described document status.  The ldapbis-strprep-06, 
    ldapbis-user-schema-10, and ldapbis-syntaxes-11 documents have been ready 
    for submission to the IESG, and will be so submitted shortly after today's 
    meeting.  The authmeth document still has an outstanding comment on an 
    issue that has already been discussed.  The issue will be resolved quickly 
    if possible and the authmeth doc will be submitted to the IESG.
    The only other remaining document is the ldapbis-roadmap-08 document, 
    which has remained more or less unchanged and un-commented-on for a long 
    time.  The chairs will submit this document to the IESG without a WG last 
    call, since it is uncontroversial, and any issues can be dealt with during 
    IETF last call.
    Kurt proposed, regarding new work, that the Apps Area Directory 
    Directorate meet (as a side meeting, not a formal BoF) at IETF 65 in 
    Dallas, to consider whether to try to form a new WG or proceed in some 
    other fashion.  Discussion on this should be directed to the 
    ldapext@ietf.org list.
    There will be a Wake for ldapbis this evening at the Yaletown pub, 
    starting at 19:45.
    The meeting adjourned at 15:26.
      - RL "Bob"
