Final Charter for Working Group

The TCP Large Windows Working Group is chartered to produce a
specification for the use of TCP on high-delay, high-bandwidth paths.
To this end, this working group recommended TCP extensions for long-delay paths'' (RFC 1072), andTCP Extension for High-Speed
Paths'' (RFC 1185)
be published jointly as a Proposed Standard. Deficiencies in
the technical details of the documents were identified by the
End-to-End Research Group of the IRTF. Rather than progress the
standard with known deficiencies, the IESG tasked the End-to-End
Research Group to fix and merge these two documents into a single
protocol specification document. This review was done on the mailing list.

The TCP Large Windows Working Group is being resurrected for a one
time meeting, to review and if appropriate, approve this new document.
