Title : Multicast Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (MAODV)

The multicast operation of the Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector
(AODV) routing protocol (MAODV) is intended for use by mobile nodes
in an ad hoc network. It offers quick adaptation to dynamic link
conditions, low processing and memory overhead, and low network
utilization. It creates bi-directional shared multicast trees
connecting multicast sources and receivers. These multicast trees
are maintained as long as group members exist within the connected
portion of the network. Each multicast group has a group leader
whose responsibility is maintaining the group sequence number, which
is used to ensure freshness of routing information.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
