Final Group description

The RSVP directorate is an advisory group of RSVP experts selected by the transport area directors. The notion of a directorate is defined in RFC 2418 as follows:

In many areas, the area directors have formed an advisory group or directorate. These comprise experienced members of the IETF and the technical community represented by the area. The specific name and the details of the role for each group differ from area to area, but the primary intent is that these groups assist the area director(s), e.g., with the review of specifications produced in the area.

Note that while some directorates advise area directors about all the work in the relevant are, the RSVP directorate is focused only on issues related to RSVP (which may also include Integrated Services issues).

Individuals who wish to join the RSVP directorate should contact the transport area directors. RSVP directorate members should have expertise in RSVP and/or IntServ?, but not be currently actively involved in developing extensions to those technologies, in order to minimize potential conflict of interest.
