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
There will be a Wake for ldapbis this evening at the Yaletown pub,
starting at 19:45.
The meeting adjourned at 15:26.
