A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Reliable Multicast Transport Working Group of the IETF.
Title : Reliable Multicast Transport Building Block: Tree
Author(s) : B. Whetten et al.
Filename : draft-ietf-rmt-bb-tree-config-03.txt
Pages : 27
Date : 2003-2-13
The Reliable Multicast Transport Working Group has been chartered
to standardize multicast transport services. This working group
expects to initially standardize three protocol instantiations.
This draft is concerned with the requirements of the tree-based
ACK protocol. In particular, it is concerned with defining the
building block for auto-configuration of the logical ACK-tree.
According to the charter, a building block is 'a coarse-grained
modular component that is common to multiple protocols along with
abstract APIs that define a building block's access methods and
their arguments.' For more information, see the Reliable
Multicast Transport Building Blocks and Reliable Multicast Design
Space documents [WLKHFL01][HWKFV00].

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
