RFC 3777 specifies that "sitting members" of the IAB and IESG 
"may not volunteer to serve on the nominating committee".  Since the time
that document was written, the IETF Administrative Oversight
Committee (IAOC) was formed; that body is not covered by RFC 3777.
There is also ambiguity in RFC 3777 about whether ex officio members
and liaisons are included as "sitting members".  This document
updates RFC 3777 to clarify the rules as they apply to members of the
IAB, the IESG, and the IAOC.  This memo documents an Internet Best 
Current Practice.

BCP: This document specifies an Internet Best Current Practices for the
Internet Community, and requests discussion and suggestions for 
improvements. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
