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
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
