Description of Working Group

RIP Version 2 and the Version 2 MIB was approved as a Proposed Standard in January 1993. They were published as RFC 1388 and RFC 1389. Since the mimimum required period has elapsed for a protocol to remain as a Proposed Standard, RIP V2 can now be considered for advancement to Draft Standard.

The RIP Version 2 Working Group will prepare a recommendation to the IESG evalating the standards track status of RIP Version 2 and the RIP Version 2 MIB. The recommendation will document implementation, interoperability and deployment experience as required by RFC 1264 ``Routing Protocol Criteria.''

This group is chartered to prepare revisions of ``RIP Version 2'' (RFC 1388), ``RIP Version 2 MIB'' (RFC 1389), and the analysis document (RFC 1387) if necessary.

The RIP Version 2 Working Group is further chartered to evaluate the proposal for ``Routing over Demand Circuits using RIP'' for standards track consideration.
