The RDMA extensions draft (see below) was approved and posted due to a combination of pilot error on my part and a favor to the authors because they submitted it right at the -00 cutoff deadline (hint: that's not a particularly good idea, because if something goes wrong, there's no opportunity to correct and resubmit).

This draft is **NOT** an official storm WG draft (at least, not right now) - the authors would like the storm WG to consider adopting it as a work item.  The draft is certainly within the potential scope of the WG as it updates another one of the RDMA protocols originally produced by the rddp WG - a revised version of the MPA peer connect draft should appear this week, and will be sent onward to the ADs for review, IETF Last Call, etc.

WG consideration of this RDMAP extension draft *will be* coupled with a determination of what to do about the iSER work item.  The iSER draft has expired through no fault of the author - Mike Ko has been diligent in updating the iSER draft, but everyone else with an interest in iSER appears to have vanished from the storm WG mailing list.  Let me be clear - if there is no interest in iSER changes to reflect what's actually been implemented, that work *will be* abandoned.  For those who want to refresh their memory about what's in that draft, a copy of the expired draft can be found at:


Comments to the list on both drafts are encouraged.
