Dear all,

Approximately a year ago, I joined the WG and advertised an extension to 
RPL that I had been working on for some time with a goal of describing 
it in a draft. Unfortunately, just when I got the necessary pointers and 
a few initial comments, the pandemic broke out. The resulting surge of 
professional and personal obligations made it literally impossible for 
me to participate in and, at some point, even follow the group's 
activities, for which I am sorry.

However, I did strive to regularly find a little time to get somewhat 
acquainted with IETF's procedures and write up something that may 
resemble a draft. I have just submitted it as:

    draft-iwanicki-roll-rnfd-00

and created a dedicated repository on the group's GitHub.

Since I have no experience writing IETF documents, I would really 
appreciate your collaboration on either turning the text into a true 
draft or concluding that this should not be done.

Please, keep mind in mind that I decided to maximally cut down the 
original algorithms, so that the extension is as simple as possible 
without losing key properties. Therefore, it is likely that if the 
extension as a whole or any of its parts turn out relevant or 
interesting, still a considerable amount of work may be necessary to 
have it or them described properly. Your contribution is most welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
