The design team is established with a specific objective to look at the compression-related work. It is tasked to agree on a requirements proposal to the WG and a comparison document to be evaluated by the WG. To be clear, as is the normal case for the IETF, the design team outputs are input to the WG. Their output will not become a WG document until the WG agrees to adopt it. Also, these documents are for WG use. It will be for future analysis as to whether it is useful to the larger community to publish them as RFCs.
Stage 1: Prepare the requirement draft by end of September
Discussion order: follow the time of items.
Stage 2: Prepare the analysis draft by end of November (expected time, Let us talk about the schedule after the first draft finished.)
