One of the happy highlights of the CDI BOF yesterday was Ned Freed saying
(approximately) that the most recent charter difficulties were due to
confusion (about the passing of "content area" responsibilities from IAB
back to the ADs).
Accordingly, the CDI charter is to be on the agenda of the next IESG call,
which is apparently on the 20th. Phil and I are charged with making sure we
get the right version of the charter to the IESG before that call.
So we'll see how that goes. I'm not actually detecting any significant
incidence of the "CDI is evil" meme any more, and I used to run into that a
fair amount from people well-connected in the IETF.
People who were at the OPES BOF (I couldn't be there) tell me that it
involved quite reasonable, well-considered discussion. The IAB's effort to
examine OPES took account of the "OPES is just evil" school of thought and
rejected it, although they did acknowledge that OPES has to be done
carefully to avoid evil results.
