> To: IETF Announcement List <ietf-announce@ietf.org>
> Cc: 6lo@ietf.org, rdroms.ietf@gmail.com, cabo@tzi.org
> A new IETF non-working group email list has been created.
> List address: 6lo@ietf.org
> Archive: http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/6lo/
> To subscribe: https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/6lo
> Purpose: Since it was set up in 2005, the 6LoWPAN WG has created specifications
> for building IPv6 networks out of devices that use the IEEE 802.15.4
> wireless network standard. This work has culminated in the recent
> publication of RFC 6775, 6LoWPAN-ND, and the 6LoWPAN WG is shutting down.
> This does not mean the work in this space is done. Indeed, 6LoWPAN
> produced one more document that isn't even about 802.15.4:
> draft-ietf-6lowpan-btle-12.txt, the equivalent of 6LoWPAN for the low
> energy mode of the Bluetooth 4.0 specification, is now in IESG
> processing, waiting for the assignment of a number from the Bluetooth
> SIG. A number of related drafts want to apply 6LoWPAN technology to
> other constrained node network layer 2 specifications:
> -- draft-brandt-6man-lowpanz-00.txt
> -- draft-ietf-6man-6lobac-01.txt
> -- draft-mariager-6lowpan-v6over-dect-ule-02.txt
> Also, some additional specifications are generally regarded as useful
> complements of the existing 6LoWPAN work:
> -- draft-schoenw-6lowpan-mib-03.txt
> -- draft-bormann-6lowpan-ghc-05.txt
> -- draft-kelsey-intarea-mesh-link-establishment-05.txt
> -- draft-bormann-6lowpan-roadmap-03.txt
> Beyond that, some older proposals that the 6LoWPAN WG has not picked
> up are receiving new attention:
> -- draft-thubert-6lowpan-backbone-router-03.txt
> -- draft-thubert-roll-forwarding-frags-01.txt
> Finally, there are some architectural issues raised by 6LoWPAN's use
> of adaptation layer fragmentation on top of a lossy radio:
> -- draft-bormann-intarea-alfi-02.txt
> As can be seen, these drafts have been addressed to a zoo of working
> groups, including the sunsetting 6LoWPAN WG, the 6MAN WG, INTAREA, and
> even ROLL, with the addressed WG often changing over the lifetime of a
> draft. It is probably more productive to focus most of this closely
> related work on a specific WG.
> One clear candidate is the 6man WG. However, that WG has a number of
> other duties in maintaining IPv6 that make it subscribing to its
> mailing list too onerous to the group of experts interested in
> constrained node networking. It is probably worth separating out the
> 6man-related work that focuses on constrained node networks. There
> are, however, architectural aspects that are indeed best left in 6man
> or even INTAREA. The 6Lo mailing list has been set up to organize the
> discussion of a charter for a potential working group that focuses on
> IP-over-foo standardization (adaptation layers) for constrained node
> networks, working closely with the INT area working groups and other
> IETF WGs focused on constrained node networks.
