The IESG has decided to move the ALTO and DECADE working
groups from the Applications Area to the Transport Area. Two
factors played a role in this decision. First, the IESG feels
that consolidating the standardization of peer-to-peer
technologies in one Area will strengthen this important aspect
of Internet engineering. Second, the current work in these
WGs has strong ties to Transport work on storage protocols,
congestion control and exposure, and peer-to-peer streaming.
Bringing these two WGs into the Transport Area will leverage
this expertise for the P2P work items in ALTO and DECADE.
The Secretariat has been instructed to carry out this move
David Harrington will be the responsible Area Director for
both ALTO and DECADE. Also, Alexey Melnikov will the
Applications Area Adviser for DECADE, and Peter Saint-Andre
will be the Applications Area Adviser for ALTO.
