Dear all,

I am writing about the draft

A Mechanism for Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Avalanche Restart
Overload Control
http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-shen-soc-avalanche-restart-overload/

as a result of a discussion on the DISPATCH list suggesting that this draft
may be in-scope of the SOC charter and could benefit from WG review, I
would like to solicitate your kind opinion on whether the WG agrees on that
and is willing to take on it as a possible WG deliverable.

Some background discussion below for your reference. Thank you very much!

Charles

I agree that the charter could be read to include this document.  We should
confirm that the WG agrees, and is willing to take on the document.

Charles, could you please start a thread on the SOC list?

Thanks,
--Richard
