  Discussion of the IASA 2.0 Changes as They Relate to the IETF Trust
                  draft-ietf-iasa2-trust-rationale-03

Abstract

   This document is published to capture the rationale for the changes
   introduced in RFC NNNN (RFC Editor: please replace NNNN with the RFC
   number of [I-D.ietf-iasa2-trust-update]), Update to the Process for
   Selection of Trustees for the IETF Trust.

   At the time RFC NNNN was published, IETF administrative structure
   changes ("IASA 2.0") had an impact on the IETF Trust because members
   of the IETF Administrative Oversight Committee (IAOC), which was
   being phased out, had served as Trustees of the IETF Trust.  This
   document provides background on the past IETF Trust arrangements,
   explains the effect of the rules in the founding documents during the
   transition to the new arrangement, and provides a rationale for the
   update.

1.  Introduction

   This document is published to capture the rationale for the changes
   introduced in [I-D.ietf-iasa2-trust-update].

   At the time [I-D.ietf-iasa2-trust-update] was published, IETF
   administrative structure changes ("IASA 2.0") had an impact on the
   IETF Trust [RFC4071] [RFC4371] [I-D.ietf-iasa2-struct].  This is
   because members of the IETF Administrative Oversight Committee
   (IAOC), which was being phased out, had served as Trustees of the
   IETF Trust.  A minimal change regarding the selection of the trustees
   is implemented by [I-D.ietf-iasa2-trust-update].

   This companion memo provides some background on the details of the
   past IETF Trust arrangements, explains the effect of the rules in the
   founding documents during the transition to the new arrangement, and
   provides a rationale for the update.

2.  Background

   The purpose of the IETF Trust is to acquire, hold, maintain, and
   license certain existing and future intellectual property and other
   property used in connection with the administration of the IETF
   [RFC4371].  The intellectual property is, for instance, rights that
   the IETF contributors grant for text in RFCs and Internet-Drafts.
