The IESG has received a request from the FEC Framework WG (fecframe) to
consider the following document:
- 'Simple LDPC-Staircase Forward Error Correction (FEC) Scheme for
  <draft-ietf-fecframe-ldpc-02.txt> as Proposed Standard

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the mailing lists by 2012-10-01. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


   This document describes a fully-specified simple FEC scheme for LDPC-
   Staircase codes that can be used to protect media streams along the
   lines defined by the FECFRAME framework.  These codes have many
   interesting properties: they are systematic codes, they perform close
   to ideal codes in many use-cases and they also feature very high
   encoding and decoding throughputs.  LDPC-Staircase codes are
   therefore a good solution to protect a single high bitrate source
   flow, or to protect globally several mid-rate flows within a single
   FECFRAME instance.  They are also a good solution whenever the
   processing load of a software encoder or decoder must be kept to a
