3.1 trill WG recharter (added by Ralph)

The trill WG was recently rechartered; the new charter is at There were originally two additional work items in the charter:

  (8) Support for RBridge campus VLAN and priority regions, so that a
  VLAN ID or priority may have different meanings in different
  regions, requiring configuration only at border RBridges

  (9) Specify the use of the TRILL protocol in data centers, such as
  by adding any support that may be need for IEEE 802.1 "Data Center
  Bridging" standards <draft-eastlake-trill-rbridge-dcb>.

Adrian and Stuart expressed concern about the original charter as overlapping with IEEE 802.1 scope and work. The original suggestion was to liaise the entire charter to IEEE to confirm they are OK with the work item list before rechartering trill. We identified these two specific work items as the points of potential overlap, and rechartered the WG with the other work items. I want to get IESG discussion about liaising these two work items to IEEE 802.1 for review and comment before sending the liaison.

3.2 Virtual Interim Meetings (added by Peter)

Several working groups hold regular virtual interim meetings via WebEx?. Unfortunately, sometimes the Secretariat is not available to start the meeting at the scheduled time (which might be, for example, 7 AM in California). As a result, someone (WG chair or AD) needs to find an alternative venue at the very last minute, communicate the new conference bridge to the WG, etc. This is inconvenient. One possible solution is to allow ADs to start meetings (this might require communication of the "master" password to ADs, at least until a delegation feature could be added to WebEx?).
