Technical Summary:

The document defines how to apply the Recursive Distributed Rendezvous (ReDiR)
service discovery mechanism used in OpenDHT in RELOAD to provide a generic

tree structure of the service providers that provide a particular service. The
tree structure is stored into the RELOAD Overlay Instance using RELOAD Store
and Fetch requests.
