Description of Working Group:

The Routing area receives occasional proposals for the development and
publication of RFCs dealing with routing topics, but for which the
required work does not rise to the level where a new working group is
justified, yet the topic does not fit with an existing working group,
and a single BOF would not provide the time to ensure a mature
proposal. The rtgwg will serve as the forum for developing these types
of proposals.

The rtgwg mailing list will be used to discuss the proposals as they
arise. The working group will meet if there are one or more active
proposals that require discussion.

The working group milestones will be updated as needed to reflect the
proposals currently being worked on and the target dates for their
completion. New milestones will be first reviewed by the IESG. The
working group will be on-going as long as the ADs believe it serves a
useful purpose.
