Description of Working Group:
1. Specify the tools and mechanisms that might be used for transition to IPv6.

2. Write documents outlining how the various transition tools and mechanisms might apply to various scenarios for a transition to IPv6.

3. Coordinate with the IPv6 6bone testbed, operating under the IPv6 Testing Address Allocation allocated in Experimental RFC 2471, to foster the development, testing, and deployment of IPv6.

4. Coordinate appropriately with other IPv6 related IETF activities and activities in other organizations.
