Shepherd writeup
rfc8304-07

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.

4. Other Points
