FYI. I plan to submit a proposal for a talk based on my changes. It will be an individual presentation so as not to hurt anyone else's reputation, just mine :-).

That's a good idea!

Note that recently, David Miller said he will not go there for unclear reasons. We don't know if it is his final answer.
But most of the main NetDev contributors will be there!

To be honest, I was also thinking about submitting a proposal for either a talk or a workshop.
I also think it would be very interesting to join forces. It is maybe in my genes to propose that because the motto of my country is "Unity makes Strength" but I really think that it could help to have one single presentation about that. Note that in my country, we usually use this motto when we need to drink all available beers but that's something else :)

I don't think I am wrong to say that we all want to upstream MPTCP without having to rework all the current implementation. Like you, our main concern is to adapt both TCP and MPTCP stacks to fit with NetDev maintainer's expectations. These expectations are not always clear and we agree that NetDevConf is a very good place to discuss about that.

From my point of view, it would be possible and even better to propose two or more different ideas to make progress on this project of upstreaming MPTCP. But presenting them together will certainly indicate that we have different ideas to achieve our unique goal.
What do you think about that?

By chance, do you think you could join our weekly web conf tomorrow? https://lists.01.org/pipermail/mptcp/2018-March/000383.html
It would be very nice to discuss about this topic and others with you!
It is also possible to change the day and the time of these meetings!
