- 'Nominating Committee Process: Earlier Announcement of Open Positions
and Solicitation of Volunteers'
<draft-dawkins-nomcom-dont-wait-03.txt> as a BCP
I have two issues with this.
1) This places a new responsibility at the feet of IETF secretariat.
That's a new actor (not even a person but a role) in the process.
This is not good.
Better would be that the process allowed some already responsible
party (be it ISOC president, former NomCom chair, IETF chair, IAB
chair, or all of the above) the _option_ to allow IETF secretariat
to perform this announcement. (More about the "option" issue
2) As proposed, the IETF secretariat's role is exclusive. In the
future no one else would have the authority to publish the
solicitation. I don't think this is good. The role should be
optional, if _responsible_ party(ies) chooses to take that path,
or at most inclusive of other parties' authority.
The IETF Executive Director, who is part of the Secretariat, already
has a role in NomCom. The IETF Executive Director provides the
requirements for the open positions.
Would you be more comfortable if the Executive Director were named as
the responsible party?
