IETF Applications Area Directorate
The IETF Applications Area Directorate provides support to the Area Directors for the IETF Applications Area and is tasked to:
- perform document reviews as requested by the Application Area Directors
- perform early document reviews as requested by the Working Group Chairs
- identify work in other IETF Areas that have an impact on or are similar to technologies produced in the Applications Area
- make sure that technologies developed in the Applications Area or about which Application Area participants have expertise (URIs/IRIs, MIME, XML, IDNA, Stringprep, etc.) are used appropriately in other areas.
- determine the impact on Applications Area work on technologies produced in other areas (DNS, TLS, SASL, etc.).
- sort out layering issues and preserve a clear division of responsibilities among various application protocols.
- maintain high standards of application-layer security, ensure close attention to issues of internationalization and localization, etc.
Area Directors being advised:
- Barry Leiba
- responsible for appsawg, core, httpbis, hybi, scim, urnbis, websec
- Pete Resnick
- responsible for eppext, json, paws, precis, uta, weirds
The Applications Area Directorate consists of Working Group Chairs of the Applications Area and recognized experts in the Applications Area. The reviews performed are semi-formal. The team uses the members-only appsdir mailing list for internal discussion, but reviews are posted to the public mailing list apps-discuss. Reviews typically take the form described in the template. A tracker page provides a history of completed reviews.
There are usually two kind of reviews: the ones which are performed when the IETF Last Call is issued, and the "early reviews" which the WG chairs are encouraged to ask when a document becomes stable enough.
To request a review, please contact one of the following:
List of Reviews and Pending Reviews
Information for document authors
The comments in an Applications Area Directorate review do not bear more weight than a comment submitted by an individual during a Last Call. Document authors might find the information at http://trac.tools.ietf.org/area/app/trac/wiki/template useful.
Information for reviewers
The most important item is to give the Applications Area Directors a sense of how important it is that they pay attention to the document. More information about the review process is available at http://trac.tools.ietf.org/area/app/trac/wiki/AppsDirReview
