Shepherd writeup

1. Summary

The document shepherd is Zaheduzzaman Sarker. The responsible Area Director is
Spencer Dawkins.

This document describes well established function calls as "primitives" that
any program can use to get automated services from UDP and UDP-lite protocol.
This description gives very good information about the services provided by the
protocols as in the RFC series. The working group believes the primitives will
be useful to use a transport service implementation.

2. Review and Consensus

The primitives for UDP and UDP-lite initially intended to be part of
draft-ietf-transport-usage however working group agreed to have a smaller
document for these protocols.

As this describe primitives based on what already available in RFC series for
those protocol it was straightforward to get consensus on the primitives. All
versions of this document got a fair amount of discussions in the mailing list
hence were well reviewed and got positive feedback on working group last call.
