and just what was it that the ietf needed education about?
At each IETF for as long as I've been going, we do a newcomer's
orientation on Sunday afternoon.
Right. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.
I'm not sure when we started doing it, but we've been doing a security
tutorial on Sunday afternoon for a good number of IETFs..
Just to make sure of maximum access to machines on the temporary
ops.ietf.org network;) Make sure to use telnet and pop3 so cleartext
passwords are passed over the network, etc? Sorry, I've spent too much
time reading BOFH archives.
At each IETF for as long as I've been a working group chair, we do a
new WG chair/BoF chair training session on Monday. In the past, this
has been by-invitation-only, so you had to already be a WG chair or
BoF chair to be present. We are opening this up to the community, so
it's a little like parachute training that takes place _after_ you
leave the plane.
Ahhh. I remember that. I think I might have helped originate that policy
in Atlanta last year when I accidentally attended that meeting after
spying "lunch" on the agenda.
We've recently started doing topical workshops for working group
chairs. Topics have included bringiing people up to speed on IPR
clarifications and dealing with IPR in working groups.
Does this help?
Sure does. Thanks Spencer, and its nice to meet you.
