Dear all, 

As promising in our answer to Vincent's review, here is a *-02 version of the draft.
Please let us know if you have any comments and we may be able to provide an updated version before the cut-off. 

At IETF107, we plan on explaining :
- what has been done since IETF106 and Vincent's review 
- what we think are the future steps for this document

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Coding for efficient NetWork Communications Research Group RG of the IRTF.

        Title           : Coding and congestion control in transport
        Authors         : Nicolas Kuhn
                          Emmanuel Lochin

   FEC coding is a reliability mechanism that is distinct and separate
   from the loss detection of congestion controls.  Using FEC coding can
   be a useful way to deal with transfer tail losses or with networks
   having non-congestion losses.  However, FEC coding mechanisms should
   not hide congestion signals.  This memo offers a discussion of how
   FEC coding and congestion control can coexist.  Another objective is
   to encourage the research community to also consider congestion
   control aspects when proposing and comparing FEC coding solutions in
   communication systems.

   This document is the product of the Coding for Efficient Network
   Communications Research Group (NWCRG).  The scope of the document is
   end-to-end communications: FEC coding for tunnels is out-of-the scope
   of the document.
