Description of Working Group:

  The Dynamic Host Configuration Working Group (DHC WG) has developed DHCP
  for automated allocation, configuration and management of IP addresses,
  IPv6 prefixes, IP protocol stack and other parameters. DHCPv4 is
  currently a Draft Standard and is documented in RFC 2131 and RFC 2132.
  DHCPv6 is currently a Proposed Standard and is being updated. The WG
  plans to advance the DHCPv6 protocol to Internet standard.

  The DHC WG is responsible for defining DHCP protocol extensions.
  Definitions of new DHCP options that are delivered using standard
  mechanisms with documented semantics are not considered a protocol
  extension and thus are generally outside of scope for the DHC WG. Such
  options should be defined within their respective WGs or sponsored by an
  appropriate AD and reviewed by DHCP experts in the Internet Area
  Directorate. However, if such options require protocol extensions or new
  semantics, the protocol extension work must be done in the DHC WG.

  The DHC WG has the following main objectives:

  1. Work on informational documents providing operational or implementation advice
  about DHCPv6, as well as documents specifying standard mechanisms for
  operating, administering and managing DHCPv6 servers, clients, and relay

  2. Assist other WGs and independent submissions in defining options
  (that follow RFC 7227 guidelines) and to assure DHCP operational
  considerations are properly documented.

  3. Issue an updated version of the DHCPv6 base specification, and after
  an appropriate interval following publication, advance to Internet standard.
