Abstract

The process by which the members of the IAB and IESG are selected, confirmed, and recalled is specified. The evolution of the process has relied principally on oral tradition as a means by which the lessons learned could be passed on to successive committees. This document is a self-consistent, organized compilation of the process as it is known today.

1. Introduction

This document supercedes RFC2027, the first complete specification of

the process by which members of the IAB and IESG are selected,

confirmed, and recalled. Prior to that time, a single paragraph in

RFC1602 is the extent to which the process had been formally

recorded.
