Dear Colleagues,

Bron, John, Rob, and I have come up with draft-lear-bcp83-replacement 
that we think would be good for the community to consider.   This draft 
is motivated by the heavy price the community and individuals pay when 
PR actions are proposed.


Our goals are as follows:


  *

    Minimize disruption to the community so that we all can focus on the
    reason we are here (the tee shirts, right?)..

  *

    Maximize appropriate participation.

  *

    Encourage a healthy welcoming organization.

  *

    Preserve the dignity and privacy of those involved, balancing the
    need for transparency.

  *

    Optimize use of our precious volunteer resources.

  *

    Provide for transparency, appeals, and fairness.


What changes:


  *

    Addressing inappropriate emails is delegated to the IETF Executive
    Director function.

  *

    The IESG no longer needs to create, invoke, and evaluate Posting
    Rights actions, and the community doesn’t individually evaluate them.

  *

    The IETF Executive Director can take any action they deem
    appropriate, but with an eye toward the least necessary intervention.

      o

        Examples would include nothing, a good talking to, advice,
        moderation, a temporary posting restriction, or a permanent ban.

  *

    Actions taken are reported to the IESG and in the case of bans or
    suspensions, minuted.

  *

    Decisions may be appealed, i.e., to the Executive Director, then
    IESG, and finally IAB.

  *

    The moderator team [RFC 9245] is disbanded.


Why the IETF Executive Director?


We as a community have shown over the last two years that we’re not good 
at this sort of thing.  Counterproductive (and in some cases hurtful) 
exchanges go on and on, and we perceive that people enter the fray 
unwilling to be persuaded by others.  In that sense, the consensus 
process is not functioning effectively.  So rather than debating each 
instance, let’s agree on the policies, delegate their execution, and 
allow for the IESG to oversee the function while providing for 
appropriate transparency and appeals.


We propose that this be brieflydiscussed at alldispatch after ‘real 
work’ drafts, so as to minimize the use of community resources there, 
and we politely request that the IETF chair consider AD-sponsoring this 
work for that same reason.
