Just to add my two cents to this discussion from a (past) noncom chair
perpsective, having more experienced IETF participants on the Nomcom helps
tremendously. It makes it far easier for the noncom chair and non-voting
members (previous nomcom chair and liaisons) to stick to the roles as
specified in RFC 3777 in terms of facilitatng and ensuring the integrity of
the process and not influencing the decisions of the nomcom. In the end,
each voting member gets one vote (using a methodology agreed by the voting
members), so the positives of ensuring the nomcom has experienced members
far outweigh any perceived negatives in my experience.
I was discussing this with various people yesterday - maybe it would be
useful to have a "moving average" NOMCOM, with a two year term, and 50%
replacement each year. Once that was set up, I think that the need for
experienced hands would diminish - one year on the NOMCOM seems to be quite a
bit of experience.
I don't think Mary is talking about members with previous nomcom experience but
rather more IETF experience. I agree. In fact, why should we have nomcom
members with little IETF experience picking our leadership?
