A new IETF non-working group email list has been created.

List address:
To subscribe:

Performance enhancing functions in the network increasingly no longer
can peek into and manipulate higher layer information, but now can be
built on more powerful platforms. That opens the opportunity to perform
optimizations such as loss recovery (retransmission, recovery via FEC)
between the ingress and the egress nodes of a tunnel that spans a path
segment. LOOPS (Local Optimizations on Path Segments) is an effort to
start a working group that defines a protocol for such a function and an
information model for the data exchanged between the tunnel ends, with
bindings to multiple encapsulation schemes.
