Technical Summary

The IASA 2.0 changes will have an impact on the IETF Trust because
   members of the IET Administrative Oversight Committee (IAOC) IAOC,
   which is being phased out, have served as Trustees of the IETF Trust.
   This discussion document provides background on the current IETF
   Trust arrangements, explains the effect of the rules in the founding
   documents during a transition to a new arrangement, and provides a
   rationale for the update.

Working group summary

This document was reviewed reviewed by the IASA2.0 WG. There was some discussion during WGLC of whether this document should advance to Information RFC or simply be allowed to expire. The group expressed a slight preference for advancing the document, as it is referenced by draft-ietf-iana2-trust-update.

There were a few review comments from the WG that should be implemented before this document becomes an RFC. It is anticipated that those changes will be wrapped into the document with any last call comments. For example, the last sentence of Section 1 now states that this document was not targeting RFC status, which it clearly now is.   

Document Quality

There are no concerns about document quality.
