This memo describes the message and procedure related to the 
Multicast Announce and Control Protocol (MACP). This protocol is 
considered as one 'building blocks' of a reliable multicast 
transport framework.  
The Multicast Announce and Control Protocol (MACP) organizes the 
process by which a multicast sender node (Msender) manages 
transmissions to dynamic groups of receivers (Mreceivers) in the 
'one-to-many' model. The prime objective of MACP is to work in 
conjunction with various data transport protocols in order to meet 
various network requirements. One other main objective is to provide 
a unified announce transport mechanism for both bulk data transfer 
and streamed data.

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.
