SM and I have merged our 3777 update proposals, and we have posted the
merged version.  This is BCCed to the NomCom discussion list; please
take discussion of this to the main IETF discussion list now.

Reminder: the primary purpose of this is to add the IAOC to some of
the points in RFC 3777, since 3777 pre-dates the formation of the
IAOC.  Some of the IAOC-related processed are described in RFC 4333,
so this doesn't cover everything -- but it adds the IAOC to what we
think is appropriate.  It also incorporates the one Verified erratum
against 3777, and clarifies that a few other people should not be
eligible to volunteer for the NomCom -- in practical matters, it has
little effect, because most of them would not be volunteering anyway.

We aim to ask Russ to AD-sponsor this soon.  Further discussion is open.

Barry (and SM)
