 There are a few drafts floating around that I think we should take a look at and make a recommendation to the ADs regarding their suitability for the TSVWG. These drafts are:



The first one seems pretty non-controversial. Here are comments from the author:
> draft-narayanan-tsvwg-rsvp-resource-sharing-02 is now a companion draft to draft-berger-ccamp-assoc-info-01, and contains only the RSVP-CAC-specific part of the resource sharing thingy. Given that TSVWG is the place for RSVP CAC extensions, yes, I would think TSVWG is the place for it. It's a very small draft basically defining a new codepoint (Resource Sharing Remote-ID Association) with a small behavioural change (only treat this Association-ID as binding on the Resv, not on the Path), so I don't envision any significant backpressure of the form "this is not a small change to RSVP".

I would like to recommend that this be made a TSVWG work item. Any comments or concerns?

The lefaucheur and polk drafts should probably be treated as a pair. Both relate to the issue of reserving an appropriate level of resource (e.g. bandwidth) in a single round trip when it is not known in advance how much resource is available. This is quite helpful, for example, in a video conferencing application that has a choice of codecs. The polk draft in particular was (I think) a catalyst for the RSVP discussion in Anaheim because it seemed to be stretching the scope of what has normally been done in TSVWG for RSVP maintenance.

Given the scope of the directorate, I would like a couple of folks on the directorate to review those drafts and then we can discuss whether they should become TSVWG work items. Can I have some volunteers?
