Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: IETF-Announce <email@example.com> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <firstname.lastname@example.org>, RFC Editor <email@example.com>, rmt mailing list <firstname.lastname@example.org>, rmt chair <email@example.com> Subject: Document Action: 'NACK-Oriented Reliable Multicast Protocol (NORM)' to Experimental RFC The IESG has approved the following documents: - 'NACK-Oriented Reliable Multicast (NORM) Building Blocks ' <draft-ietf-rmt-bb-norm-10.txt> as an Experimental RFC - 'NACK-Oriented Reliable Multicast Protocol (NORM) ' <draft-ietf-rmt-pi-norm-11.txt> as an Experimental RFC These documents are products of the Reliable Multicast Transport Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Allison Mankin and Magnus Westerlund. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-rmt-pi-norm-11.txt
RFC Editor Note Add to both documents at the end of the Introduction (not as a numbered section) Statement of Intent This memo contains part of the definitions necessary to fully specify a Reliable Multicast Transport protocol in accordance with RFC2357. As per RFC2357, the use of any reliable multicast protocol in the Internet requires an adequate congestion control scheme. While waiting for such a scheme to be available, or for an existing scheme to be proven adequate, the Reliable Multicast Transport working group (RMT) publishes this Request for Comments in the "Experimental" category. It is the intent of RMT to re-submit this specification as an IETF Proposed Standard as soon as the above condition is met.
