Update to the IETF Anti-Harassment Procedures for the Replacement of the
      IETF Administrative Oversight Committee (IAOC) with the IETF
                           Administration LLC

Abstract

   The IETF Anti-Harassment Procedures are described in RFC 7776.

   The IETF Administrative Oversight Committee (IAOC) has been replaced
   by the IETF Administration LLC, and the IETF Administrative Director
   has been replaced by the IETF LLC Executive Director.  This document
   updates RFC 7776 to amend these terms.

   RFC 7776 contained updates to RFC 7437.  RFC 8713 has incorporated
   those updates, so this document also updates RFC 7776 to remove those
   updates.

1.  Introduction

   The IETF Anti-Harassment Procedures are described in RFC 7776
   [RFC7776].  Those procedures include direction for the IETF Chair and
   Ombudsteam to take advice from the IETF Administrative Oversight
   Committee (IAOC) with respect to the budget available for training.

   The IAOC has been replaced by the IETF Administration LLC, and the
   IETF Administrative Director has been replaced by the IETF LLC
   Executive Director.  This document updates RFC 7776 to amend these
   terms and to update a reference.

   RFC 7776 contained updates to [RFC7437].  [RFC8713] has incorporated
   those updates, so this document also updates RFC 7776 to remove those
   updates.

   This document makes no other changes to the procedures described in
   RFC 7776.
