The IESG has received a request from an individual submitter to consider
the following document:
- 'The Tao of IETF: A Novice's Guide to the Internet Engineering Task
<draft-hoffman-tao4677bis-15.txt> as Informational RFC
The Tao of the IETF has grown a bit stale. For example, many of the
tasks that were requested by email are now done with online tools,
completely avoiding manual intervention by the Secretariat. This is
an effort to refresh the document.
The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
ietf@... mailing lists by 2012-06-27. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to iesg@... instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.
This document describes the inner workings of IETF meetings and
Working Groups, discusses organizations related to the IETF, and
introduces the standards process. It is not a formal IETF process
document but instead an informational overview.
