(CBHE) mechanism for the InterPlanetary Network ('ipn' URI scheme).
Moreover, RFC 5050 defines values for the Bundle Protocol
administrative record type.  All of these fields are subject to a
registry.  For the purpose of its research work, the group has
created ad hoc registries.  As the specifications are stable and have
multiple interoperable implementations, the group would like to hand

Hi,

as announced by the RG chairs, the IRTF's Scalable Active Multicast Research Group (SAMRG) has decided to
close down, following the publication of their final two RFCs. The SAMRG mailing list will also close.

I'd like to thank the SAMRG participants - and especially the chairs - for all their efforts over the years!

Group communication services exist in a large variety of flavors and
technical implementations at different protocol layers.  Multicast
data distribution is most efficiently performed on the lowest
available layer, but a heterogeneous deployment status of multicast
technologies throughout the Internet requires an adaptive service
binding at runtime.  Today, it is difficult to write an application
that runs everywhere and at the same time makes use of the most
efficient multicast service available in the network.  Facing
