The argument has been around why if anyone needs to be excluded from
signing a recall petition. I have made a case to exclude the current
nomcom members and liaisons, but can't think of a reason to exclude
IAB and IESG members.
Good question. But I'm thinking that its simply good established
practise to exclude the leadership from affecting too much
its own evaluation, selection, or - as in this case - firing.
John notes correctly that the IAB and IESG members sometimes know
quicker than other IETF contributors if one of them is disruptive or
I would really rather attack this problem (if it exists) from
another direction - by having more openness. I think we have
made a LOT of progress in this area with trackers, minutes,
etc, and I hope that there's a continued work on this.
