We often see proposals for APIs (most commonly C APIs) discussed in the IETF.  ISO/IEC JTC1/SC22 is the standards body for various programming languages, notably including C (WG14) and C++ (WG21), and those groups have been working on APIs for various IETF technologies, including URIs, sockets, IP addresses, etc.  The IAB is considering whether to request a liaison relationship with ISO/IEC JTC1/SC22 and is seeking to determine if there are candidates willing to serve as a liaison manager before determining whether to request the relationship.  For details on what a liaison manager position entails, see RFC 4052, RFC 4053, and RFC 4691.
 
Volunteers are requested to send email to iab@iab.org by May 28, 2014.

On behalf of the IAB,
Russ Housley
IAB Chair
