Hi Eric

I will bite first. I am fairly interested and willing to contribute to the MOPS (if it takes off). 

Having said that, I have a number of high-level comments on the scope and charter:

1) Soliciting input from other organizations: Is this supposed to be thru liaisons? We all know how slow that process is and usually takes several months before it can be sent/received due to different meeting cycles. Or do we expect people from all the relevant organizations to be on the MOPS list and communicate more quickly? The latter would be nicer, but most organizations do not liaise/communicate that way.

2) Input from network operators: Besides the well-known common problems, I don’t think we can expect any operator to report its operational excellence or operational failures. Or do we expect that?

3) Issues and opportunities in media acquisition and delivery. This came up in the meeting, though I don’t recall which aspects of media acquisition would be within the scope. Similarly, I don’t understand well enough to comment on 4/ and 5/ below (like operation of media technologies in the global Internet). What are the media technologies that are referred to here and what do we mean by their operation in the global Internet? Yes, most of the Internet traffic is video today, but most of that video is not going around the globe to be delivered, at least not in that amount. Replication/fanout is pretty close to the edge. To me, that part of the network is more challenging than the core.

I also agree that IETF protocols should be dealt with in their respective working groups. HTTP is popularly used to carry video, and that belongs to the HTTP working group but then maybe it would be a good idea to provide a guidelines document on how to use HTTP caching for video delivery in the MOPS WG. Input from CDN and SP folks would certainly be useful to collect and document, assuming they are willing to share their knowledge.

I have a few other comments, but I hope this will stir up some discussion.

To achieve some level of sanity, I’ve attempted to make things clearer by being more specific about the work to be done. I’ve copied below an UPDATED proposed charter, that is aiming to be at least a little more concrete.

I told the ADs that I didn’t want to just write a bunch of things and then try to badger people into working on them (though I will if I have to :^) ). I’d rather have suggestions from interested parties about the things they are willing to work on in this area, or that they’d like to see done with a little help from others.

In fact, I see MOPS to focus specifically on how protocols coming out of the IETF “factory” when used in “real-world” may have implications across the service delivery food chain. Some of the implications may be by design or not as expected. MOPS will help bring operational issue whether it relates to delivery of service using a protocol that is efficient (or inefficient), or, is the network on which protocol is running supporting the protocol “as-is” or is there a need for network operators adjust the network, or is there an issue for UA conforming to delivery using a particular protocol.].

The scope is media and media protocols’ interactions with the network, but not the technologies of control protocols or media formats.
