  Internet Engineering Task Force - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The IETF is overseen by the Internet Architecture Board (IAB), which oversees its external relationships, and relations with the RFC Editor.
The IETF has at times been ascribed nearly magical abilities by the trade press, who assumed its mechanisms were responsible for the success of the Internet because it works on the Internet's core protocols.
Work within the IETF on ways to improve its speed is ongoing but, because the number of volunteers with opinions on it is very great, consensus mechanisms on how to improve have been slow to emerge.

 Open Sources: Voices from the Open Source Revolution
IETF working groups have defined the security standards that will help secure the Internet, the quality of service standards that will make the Internet a more predictable environment, and the standard for the next generation of the Internet protocol itself.
The IETF has grown quite a bit since then, with more than 500 attendees at the 23rd meeting in March 1992, more than 750 attendees at the 29th meeting in March 1994, more than 1,000 attendees at the 31st meeting in December 1994, and almost 2,000 attendees at the 37th meeting in December 1996.
The IETF motto is "rough consensus and running code." Working group unanimity is not required for a proposal to be adopted, but a proposal that cannot demonstrate that most of the working group members think that it is the right thing to do will not be approved.

 RFC 1603 (rfc1603) - IETF Working Group Guidelines and Procedures   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-20)
The IETF is a large, open community of network designers, operators, vendors, users, and researchers concerned with the Internet and the technology used on it.
IETF experience suggests that these roles typically cannot all be handled by one person; four or five active participants are typically required.
IETF Meetings If a WG needs a session at an IETF meeting, the Chair must apply for time-slots as soon as the first announcement of that IETF meeting is made by the IETF Secretariat to the WG-chairs list.

 All About The Internet: Standards
Newcomers to the IETF never quite believe that the process is as open as it is. Anyone with a fresh perspective, clear insight, or good jokes is always welcome.
IETF participants usually are directly involved in producing or using the technology.
To date, the IETF has shown an astonishing ability to add capabilities to the core technology, and there is little indication that it has reached a limit in that ability.

 All About ISOC: Related Organizations - IETF and ISOC Relationship by Vint Cerf
During the last half of 1992, the relationship between the IAB and the IETF came under scrutiny through the first POISED Working Group which reallocated responsibilities for standards decision making and established the framework around which the current practices for populating IAB and IETF are conducted.
The funds are to be spent in accordance with IETF and IESG direction as conveyed to ISOC by the IETF chair.
The activities of the IETF are most closely related to those in ITU-T, so exchange of information, joint meetings or other coordinating efforts, if any are desired, would presumably take place between IETF and ITU-T. There is no requirement for any particular interaction between these groups, only the potential should it be deemed mutually beneficial.

 Current DNS standards activity
Most (but not all) Internet-Drafts are produced within IETF working groups.
Nowadays the majority of IETF documents are somehow related to DNS.
This may be because the document is too operationally focused to fit into a working group that is focused on developing standards, or because the author's views are different from the consensus view of the working group, or simply because the author did not proceed through the usual working group structure.

 Web Naming and Addressing Overview (URIs, URLs, ...)
In situations where the base URL is well-defined and known to the parser (human or machine), it is useful to be able to embed URL references which inherit that context rather than re-specifying it in every instance.
This one is ratified as an IETF proposed standard, and it discusses each of the URL schemes (known at that time), but its grammar has some mistakes, and it doesn't cover several aspects of URL syntax, such as relative URLs and fragment identifiers
This documents the designer's intent, before it was revised by the standards process.
