Hi all,

Over the next few months, I will be working (officially through the 
GSoC program) on improving the current model of TCP Prague in ns-3. An 
implementation in ns-3 has already been provided by Joakim here [1].

After a brief discussion with my mentors, we decided that I should 
begin my work by looking into pacing. Our ultimate goal is to make 
experimenting with TCP Prague easier for everyone, by using 
simulation-based frameworks like ns-3. I also plan on testing and 
aligning our eventual implementation against that of Linux.

[1] currently provides paced chirping for slow start. We were hoping 
for suggestions on how to further incorporate other aspects of pacing 
in our implementation (any particular scenario we should consider, or 
any changes compared to what Linux has implemented, so on).

Thanks
- Deepak
