Charter for Working Group

The number of information services (Gopher, WWW, etc.) on the
Internet is
growing rapidly. This poses a problem for administrators,
implementors
and providers in maintaining the quality of the information service
(as
opposed to quality of the information itself).

The aim of this working group is to deal with one of the specific
problems with respect to quality of the information service, namely
link
problems. A link problem is defined as the case where a user selects
a
link and is returned slow data, no data, incomplete data or wrong
data.

The working group will analyze link failures and their causes, and,
based
on the analysis, it will devise both technical solutions and
operational
recommendations to address this specific problem.
