This Informational document records the history of discussions
in the Problem WG during 2003 of how to resolve the problems
described in the IETF Problem Statement. It decomposes each of the
problems described into a few areas for improvement and categorizes
them as either problems affecting the routine processes used to create
standards or problems affecting the fundamental structure and
practices of the IETF.  Expeditious and non-disruptive solutions are
proposed for the problems affecting routine processes.

The document also lists suggested ways to handle the development
of solutions for the structure and practices problems proposed
in IETF discussions.  Neither the working group nor the wider
IETF has reached consensus on a recommendation for any of the
proposals. This document therefore has no alternative

practices solutions be handed back to the control of the

While there was working group consensus on the processes for
short-term and medium term improvements, there was no working
group consensus on the proposals for longer-term
improvements.  This document therefore includes longer-term
improvement proposals only as a matter of record; they must
not be regarded as recommendations from the working group.

This document is a product of the Problem Statement Working Group of
the IETF.
