Dear all,

I hope this e-mail finds you all fine even if working from home for most of us.

The current status of the QIRG documents includes only

*        Architectural Principles for a Quantum Internet (draft-irtf-qirg-principles-03<https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-irtf-qirg-principles/>)

*        Applications and Use Cases for the Quantum Internet (draft-wang-qirg-quantum-internet-use-cases-05<https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-wang-qirg-quantum-internet-use-cases/>)

In the past, there used to be at least two more drafts (obviously expired) :

*        The link layer service in a Quantum Internet (draft-dahlberg-11-quantum-03)

*        Advertising entanglement capabilities in Quantum Networks (draft-kaws-qirg-advent-03)
(Has there been more?)

I do not see all the information of the expired draft in the current active ones. Even the type of questions addressed then is no more addresses in the current document (it could be that the questions remain relevant, while the solutions proposed in the past could evolve).

So my question is, how does the group handle this kind of situation to avoid useful information loss?
Is it still possible to discuss expired draft (the community has probably  grown significantly since they expired and they might thus receive a different audience)?

Just let us know

All the best
