Charter charter-ietf-tsvwg-06

The Transport Area receives occasional proposals for the development and 
  publication of RFCs dealing with transport topics that are not in scope 
  of an existing working group or do not justify the formation of a new 
  working group. TSVWG will serve as the forum for developing such work 
  items in the IETF.
  
  The TSVWG mailing list is an open discussion forum for such work items, 
  when they arise. The working group meets if there are active proposals 
  that require discussion. The working group milestones are updated as 
  needed to reflect the current work items and their associated 
  milestones.
  
  The currently active TSVWG work items mostly fall under the
  Following topics:
  
  (A) Maintenance of the Stream Control Transmission Protocol
  (SCTP), which involves bug fixes to the SCTP specifications and their 
  progression along the standards track. This work item also includes a 
  small number of modular extensions to SCTP. In order to maintain stable 
  specifications, additional work on SCTP in TSVWG requires Area Director 
  approval.
  
  (B) Maintenance of the Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) which 
  involves bug fixes to RSVP specifications and their progression along 
  the standards track.  This work item may also include a small number 
  of extensions to both RSVP and Integrated Services or advisory documents 
  to address specific application scenarios. In order to maintain stable 
  specifications, additional work on RSVP and/or Integrated Services in 
  TSVWG requires Area Director approval.
  
  (C) Maintenance of IP Differentiated Services (DiffServ) mechanisms, 
  which involves mostly advisory documents on the use of DiffServ in 
  specific application scenarios. Other work items related to DiffServ 
  require Area Director approval.
  
  (D) Selected other work items, which are mostly in TSVWG for historic 
  reasons.
  
  Additional work that does not fall under one of the above topics in 
  TSVWG must satisfy four conditions:
  (1) WG consensus on the suitability and projected quality of the 
  proposed work item. 
  (2) A core group of WG participants with sufficient energy and expertise 
  to advance the work item according to the proposed schedule. 
  (3) Commitment from the WG as a whole to provide sufficient and timely 
  review of the proposed work item.
  (4) Agreement by the ADs, who, depending on the scope of the proposed 
  work item, may decide that an IESG review is needed first.
