    Just posted the updated version of the draft. Please review.


A new version of I-D, draft-ananth-middisc-tcpopt-01.txt
has been successfully submitted by Arivu Ramasamy and posted to the
IETF repository.

Filename:     draft-ananth-middisc-tcpopt
Revision:     01
Title:         TCP option for transparent Middlebox negotiation
Creation date:     2013-01-21
WG ID:         Individual Submission
Number of pages: 16

  This document describes a TCP option for use by middleboxes to
  facilitate transparent detection of other middleboxes along the path
  of the TCP connection during the connection initiation phase.  The
  option has no effect if an appropriate middlebox is not present on
  the path.

I will target the completion of the revised draft by end of next week.

I was AD when this effort was started, and it's been a while. I fully agree with Wes that we need to finish this, or declare failure and disband the list.

If there is anything I can do to help progress this, I'd be happy to.
