Greetings RTCWEB,

As you have seen the chairs recently asked for the creation of a
non-working group mailing list called "pntaw" (For "Proxies, NATs, TURN
and webrtc").  The aim of that list is to enable folks involved in HTTP
proxy development, NAT Traversal, and TURN to have a focused discussion
on behavior of those systems in the presence of RTCWEB. Because we
wanted an overlap with a different set of folks than are typically
involved in RTCWEB (and because we occasionally have a flood of
messages), we requested the separate list and topic area.

It is not, however, planned to be a WG; if there is discussion there
that results in the need for protocol work, it will go to an existing
WG, possibly this one.

So, when should you start discussing an issue there rather than here?
If the primary purpose of a document is to describe or change the
behavior of a proxy, NAT, or TURN server, it goes there.  If not, it
stays here.  If a document currently mixes topic so that some discussion
is in a document but it is not the documents primary purpose, please
disucss with the chairs how to proceed.

Hope that helps,

Magnus Westerlund
