Description of Working Group:

The Standard File Transfer Protocol specification in RFC 959
has been updated several times with command extensions of one
sort or another, including those based on the extension
mechanism of RFC 2389 (a complete list appears in RFC 5797 and
the corresponding IANA registry at
http://www.iana.org/assignments/ftp-commands-extensions).

The following are active FTP related drafts:

draft-bryan-ftp-hash
draft-hethmon-mcmurray-ftp-hosts
FTP extensions to support IPv4/IPv6 translation scenario
draft-klensin-ftp-typeu-00 - FTP Extension for Internationalized Text

The Working Group will:
* Review and finalize drafts listed above.
* Review and confirm or reject errata of current FTP RFCs.
* Investigate the differences between FTP in theory
(current RFCs) and practice, and recommend future work to align them.
Any future work would require rechartering of the WG.

The Working Group's specification deliverables are:
* A document that specifies the HOST command (Proposed Standard).
* A document that specifies the HASH command (Proposed Standard).
* A document that specifies FTP extensions to support IPv4/IPv6
translation scenario.
* A document that specifies FTP extensions for Internationalized Text.

The Working Group must not introduce a new version of FTP, e.g.
an incompatible FTP 2.0.
