Technical Summary RFC 3777 defines the Nominations and Recall Committee's operation, and includes a sample timeline for major steps in the NomCom process that meets the minimum normative requirements for the process. Recent NomComs have been scheduling based on the sample timeline, and the chairs of the last three NomComs, Danny McPherson (2004-2005), Ralph Droms (2005-2006), and Andrew Lange (2006-2007) have all reported that this timeline is very aggressive and have all suggested starting earlier. This document restructures the sample timeline, but makes no normative process changes. Working Group Summary This document is not the product of any IETF Working Group. Protocol Quality To the greatest extent possible, the recommendations in this document are being followed this year. The NomCom Chair was named at the beginning of June 2007, which is later than suggested in this document, but earlier that previous years. This document was reviewed by Russ Housley for the IESG.
