Description of Working Group:

The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP, RFC 1661) is a mature protocol with a large number of subprotocols, encapsulations and other extensions. The PPPEXT working group exists to provide a forum for asking clarifications about the existing specifications and to defend against enhancements of questionable value. The group is not expected to create new specifications, and if a need for such work comes up, a recharter is required. The group may, however, advance existing specifications to the next level in the standards track, if a need for that comes up. Similarly, the group may classify existing specifications as Historic where this is appropriate.

Goals and Milestones

Add VLAN support to BCP (RFC 1638) and recycle at Proposed Standard
