Charter for Working Group

The TFTP Extensions Working Group will review, refine as needed, and
then make a recommendation on standardization of several recent
standards-track proposals to extend TFTP. These proposals include a
backward compatible extension mechanism for TFTP and related extension
options for this mechanism.

Initial drafts of all of the documents that the working group is
expected to review have already been, or will soon be, published. The
working group will be starting with documents that have been prepared
as individual (or spontaneous design team) contributions. It is not
expected to initiate new work. On the other hand, it is expected to
make explicit "not ready for standardization" or "inappropriate for
standardization" recommendations if appropriate.

The working group will be begin with the following Internet-Drafts or
their successors:

- draft-malkin-tftp-option-ext-00.txt

- draft-malkin-tftp-blksize-opt-00.txt
