[NANOG-announce] Best Current Operational Practices Working Group


The NANOG Best Current Operational Practices Working Group is seeking
volunteers to take part in the creation of official best practices
documents. We are also looking for a co-Chairman to assist NANOG WG,
Chair Aaron Hughes. The goal of the BCOP-WG is to produce professional
Best Practices documents that can be used globally by the network
engineering community. The NANOG BCOP-WG works together with other
operator forums, ARIN, and ISOC. The NANOG organization will support
the BCOP-WG through professional resources, web sites, meeting space,
and financial support.

A mailing list is being set up and an organizational meeting will
occur at NANOG 57 in Orlando in February 2013. Some areas for BCOP
development include:

- Address Assignment
- Routing Protocol implementation
- Routing Policy
- Network Security Policy
- Network Deployment
- DNS Operations
- and more!

Please volunteer if you are able to devote some time to the effort and
have a willingness to write and edit BCOP documents. The plan is to
publish numerous official BCOP documents each year with significant
professional exposure for authors and editors. This is a great way to
get involved in the NANOG organization, to develop yourself
professionally, and to serve the larger Internet community.

If interested, please reply to betty@nanog.org.
