RFC 5757 published

Our Internet Draft "Multicast Mobility in Mobile IP Version 6 (MIPv6): Problem Statement and Brief Survey" has been published as RFC 5757.

Five years ago (October 2005), we started with our Internet draft on multicast mobility in the MobOpts research group after initial presentation at the 63th IETF meeting in Paris. March 2007, the document has been adopted as working group draft. Now, Febraury 2010, this document has finally been published as RFC 5757 :).

Work on exploring the problem space for mobile multicast has been pioneered by Greg Daley and Gopi Kurup within their early document "Requirements for Mobile Multicast Clients".
Since then, many people have actively discussed the different issues and contributed to the enhancement of RFC 5757. The authors would like to thank (in alphabetical order) Kevin C. Almeroth, Lachlan Andrew, Jari Arkko, Cedric Baudoin, Hans L. Cycon, Hui Deng, Marshall Eubanks, Zhigang Huang, Christophe Jelger, Andrei Gutov, Rajeev Koodli, Mark Palkow, Craig Partridge, Imed Romdhani, Hesham Soliman, Dave Thaler, and last, but not least, very special thanks to Stig Venaas for his frequent and thorough advice.
