RE: NomCom randomness results... delayed

                You’re right, it’s ambiguous as to which NomCom you’re 
volunteering for during registration for the July meetings.  I’ll ask AMS if 
there’s something we can do to make it clearer for future registrations.


                Alternatively, to volunteer for the 2017-2018 NomCom, you could 
have sent me an email during the call for volunteers.  Of course, that would be 
predicated on your knowing that the 2017-2018 NomCom was not covered by the 
IETF 99 registration.  We’ll try to do better in the future.

Hi Peter,

For the 2017-2018 NomCom, you would have needed to check the box for 
registration for any of IETF 96-98 (Berlin, Seoul, and Chicago).  Your checking 
the box on the IETF 99 registration form will put you on the list of the 
2018-2019 NomCom, assuming you are eligible.



Thanks. This was not what I understood when I checked the box. Maybe it should 
be made clearer in the future forms.

This is the question in the form:

Are you willing to volunteer for the Nomcom?

Hi all,

Regarding the list of volunteers, I had checked the box for volunteering for 
Nomcom when I registered for IETF 99 with payment,despite that my name is not 
in the list.

What makes?

I had planned to pull the randomness results today, but there will be a slight 
delay.  While the EuroMillions and Powerball results are available (nothing 
like the lottery for being timely), the US debt numbers are still only showing 
the values for July 3rd.  The July 4th US holiday may have something to do with 
that, although I would have expected the July 5th numbers to be up by now.

My plan for the moment is to examine the numbers tomorrow and see if the 
expected US debt data are available.  If so, I'll run with the published 
inputs.  If not, I'll have to use the latest available US debt numbers, which I 
will document in the randomness results announcement.  Please let me know if 
this plan causes any concerns.

Hi Peter -

You should pick a new date and a new set of variables, and announce rather than 
mixing and matching data you (we) already know with something you would pick 
later.  That maintains the integrity of the process by keeping human choice out 
of the process.  I'd probably also provide a caveat for when the data isn't 
available (e.g. a substitute).
