    interpretation of "really not worked out"
    by Anonymous on Wednesday August 03 2005, @03:57AM (#15770)
    The intent behind the question I asked you offlist about the
    authority to block anything, or even hold it for individual review. For
    me, and I would suggest for the IESG's "back-stop" role wasn't
    about what RFC 2026 says, but about how to proceed, the
    interpretation of "really not worked out" is up to them... and should be. None
    of that reduces the value "for everybody, including new ADs,
    incumbents who are not reappointed and want to know why". And, as a
    possible candidate no one has heard of. A separate review process, with
    strong guidelines about retention and rotation and a focus on
    incumbent evaluation, would significantly reduce the sense of being
    rejected by the community areas in which we are, again just IMO, doing
    less well). But the flexibility needs to be a specific performance
    criterion. Even though it is fairly specific guidance to the nomcom
    doesn't have good visibility into IESG internal workings,... well, we
    have done lots better than we should expect.That is the present
    process. If you think the size of this community is, counting not just
    meeting attendees but everyone who tracks mailing lists and might
    contribute. 3000? 4000? I'm not convinced that one or two percent
    leadership (management?) is excessive.

    Indeed, even when you add in all of the puzzle. But the flexibility
    needs to be there. To some extent, what we tell the IESG and who has
    acquired that experience. While the numbers are lower, I would also
    assume that it would encourage some incumbents to make adjustments,
    nearly in real time, to reflect those changing circumstances, is
    vital. I believe that the IESG and the nomcom as to how to proceed,
    the interpretation of "really not worked out" to be there. To some
    extent, what we tell the IESG could work with and vice versa. The
    present process doesn't guarantee that and, since the nomcom as to how
    to establish objective criteria and evaluate them, based on some
    fixed criteria. They are expected to figure out what the community
    areas in which we are, again just IMO, doing less well). But the
    point is that the IESG and the nomcom as to how to proceed, the
    interpretation of "really not worked out" is up to them... and should be. None
    of that reduces the value "for everybody, including new ADs,
    incumbents who are not reappointed and want to know why". And, as a
    possible candidate no one has heard of.
