Hi All, 

We have just posted a new version of the TCP testing draft (draft-moncaster-tcpm-rcv-cheat-02).


There is no significant new material in this version. The majority of the changes are in line with the comments received from Alfred Hönes last week. Our intention is not to request a presentation slot for Vancouver unless the WG wants us to present.

We have now reached the stage when we would like input from the WG as to what our next step should be. Does the WG want to adopt this work as a draft or not? As we see it this draft has three possible ways to go next:

1) Adopted as WG draft (to become informational)

2) If WG isn't interested it could become an individual contribution 

3) It could be taken elsewhere. 

In terms of its possible track at the IETF it is clearly not a standards document (nor an experiment) and, whilst it seemingly fits the RFC2026 definition of BCP it doesn't fit the de facto definition. That leaves informational as the obvious track.
