"IESG Confirmation: The IAB confirms the IETF Chair and IESG Area Directors, from nominations provided by the IETF Nominating Committee."

What does this mean? What does it mean, that the IAB "confirms" the IETF Chair?—Preceding unsigned comment added by LionKimbro (talkcontribs)

Exactly what it says. The IETF Chair is selected by the Nominations Committee, (along with the IESG members). and the IAB approves that person. They can't pick someone else, all they can do is say "yes" or "no". I don't recall any case where the IAB has ever said "no" to any name, though. It's more of a safety check than anything else.

This page: http://www.iab.org/about/history.html Says there are only two task forces left. Is it still true? If yes, the page should be updated. """The IAB (then Internet Activities Board, now Internet Architecture Board), which until that time oversaw many "task forces," changed its structure to leave only two: the IETF and the IRTF. """ —Preceding unsigned comment added by Konryd (talkcontribs)

The degree to which the IAB "oversees" the IETF is a matter for debate; most people in the IETF community seem to be happy to say what the responsibilities of the IAB are, and leave it at that. Long history... --Alvestrand (talk) 16:25, 22 September 2009 (UTC)
Should then the sentence "It oversees a number of Task Forces, of which the most important are the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF)." get changed? Konryd (talk) 17:07, 22 September 2009 (UTC)
