Good point - we'd be very interested in getting feedback on the agenda
and proposed description? Is there something we should be covering here
or something we should not be covering?
PS - I have had some comments on it, that I need to add.
BOF NAME & ACRONYM: Comprehensive apprOACH to quality (COACH)
BOF CHAIR(S): Bernard Aboba, John Loughney
Body: subscribe email@example.com
This BOF will focus on proposals for quality improvement within the IETF process, and
determine if there is enough substance to work on a framework within which these
proposals are evaluated. The outcome of the BOF will be to determine how best to
proceed with these issues in the IETF.
There are concerns about the quality and timeliness of IETF output. These problems
are enumerated in the IETF Problem Statement, currently under development in the Problem
Statement Working Group. The current IETF Problem Resolution Process document suggests
that a Working Group be formed to improve the quality processes, including review
processes, used by IETF Working Groups.
The goals of this BOF will be to determine a basic approach that the IETF could take
to WG process improvement, examine some of the documented proposal for process
improvement, and determine if there is enough interest and content to warrant the creation
of a WG to improve the quality processes used by Working Groups.
One goal is to write one or more documents on aspects of a WG quality plan. For example,
a document on tracking tools - what's available, and more importantly, how to use them
to improve quality. Another document on reviews - how they might be conducted,
the rules for reviewing, choosing reviewers, etc. The benefit of this is that it while
it requires Working Groups to think about the issue, it doesn't require that all working
groups come up with the same plan.
