COMMENT:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I like where the exchange on Martin's comment has ended up.  Thanks for that.

Everything following my first comment is editorial (at most).

Given that we have an active effort to produce IASA 2.0, is

   As always, the community is
   encouraged to provide direct feedback to the Nominations Committee
   (NOMCOM), Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG), and IAB
   regarding the discharge of the IASA's performance.

going to age well?

I think

  Focus:
      We meet to have focused technical discussions.  These are not
      limited to scheduled breakout sessions, although of course those
      are important.  They also happen over meals or drinks -- including
      a specific type of non-session that we call a "Bar BOF" [RFC6771]
      - or in side meetings.

should have the reference at the end of the sentence, as in

[RFC6771] uses both terms interchangeably.

Not asking for a text change on this, but I wonder when the last meeting was

  o  The Facility's support technologies and services -- network,
      audio-video, etc. -- are sufficient for the anticipated activities
      at the meeting, or the Facility is willing to add such
      infrastructure or these support technologies and services might be
      provided by a third party, all at no -- or at an acceptable --
      cost to the IETF.

where the Facility provided these things at no cost to the IETF ...

I wonder if "something of a preference for" is easy for ESL folk.

  o  We have something of a preference for an IETF meeting to be under
      "One Roof".  That is, qualified meeting space and guest rooms are
      available in the same facility.

I note that the following bullets are all "it is desirable".

This is a side question for the AD, but I note that we've started including
long-lived URLs in RFCs, and I wonder if a URL could be selected to include in
this text:

4.  Documentation Requirements

   The IETF Community works best when it is well informed.  This memo
   does not specify processes nor who has responsibility for fulfilling
   our requirements for meetings.  Nevertheless, both of these aspects
   are important.  Therefore, the IASA SHALL publicly document and keep
   current both a list of roles and responsibilities relating to IETF
   meetings, as well as the selection processes they use in order to
   fulfill the requirements of the community.

ISTM that people would click on it more often if they didn't have to search for
it ...
