This document defines a process experiment under RFC 3933 that
temporarily updates the criteria for qualifying volunteers to
participate in the IETF Nominating Committee. It therefore also
updates the criteria for qualifying signatories to a community recall
petition. The purpose is to make the criteria more flexible in view
of increasing remote participation in the IETF and a reduction in
face-to-face meetings. The experiment is of fixed duration and will
apply to one, or at most two, consecutive Nominating Committee
cycles, starting in 2021. This document temporarily varies the rules
in RFC 8713.

EXPERIMENTAL: This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the
Internet community.  It does not specify an Internet standard of any
kind. Discussion and suggestions for improvement are requested.
Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
