Changing to WG chair mode for a moment:

The 6LoWPAN WG is alive and well and is in the process of closing its remaining two work items (6LoWPAN-ND, 6LoWPAN for BTLE).

However, you are right in that the 6LoWPAN WG no longer takes new work on.
The chairs, with the ADs and the chairs of other WGs, will ensure that interesting work finds an appropriate home.

Indicating whether you are interested in GHC is therefore important input.

Another comment:
Beyond the +1s, it would be useful to know, whether you (I'm addressing the WG here) would be interested in

-- reviewing versions of the draft as they progress
-- implementing the draft and relaying feedback.

I'm back to personal contributor mode now.

(Luckily, we won't have this hat-changing going on any more when we find the new home.)

I'm just in the process of receiving some more packet captures.
I would like to take this opportunity to remind people that the more packet captures we have to look at, the better we will be able to optimize this scheme before nailing it down.

A collection of packets I looked at is in

(and, of course, there is the discussion of these in the draft itself).
