 +====== Timeline ======
  
 +==== June ====
 +  * 24 June - Implement the UDP/IPv4 modules based on the new TX and RX datapath. The sub-tasks involved here are:
 +    - <​del>​Define a gPXE UDP API similar to the the gPXE TCP API</​del>​
 +    - <​del>​Define a UDP connection</​del>​
 +    - Implement the API functions //(working on it)//
 +    - Define the interface between the transport and network layers //(working on it)//
 +    - Implement IPv4 functions: ''​reassembly'',​ ''​rx_process'',​ ''​transmit'',​ etc.
 +    - Write a tester function
 +    - Debug and test!
 +
 +  Milestone: we should be able to send a "​hello,​ world" message over
 +  UDP/​IPv4/​Ethernet to a listening connection and receive some response.
 +
 +==== July ====
 +
 +  * 10 July - Build TCP support into gPXE. The sub-tasks((Right now, I am not too sure what the exact sub-tasks involved are. I will revise this page as things become more clear.)) involved here are:
 +    - Revise the transport-network layer interface
 +    - Implement the TCP state machine
 +
 +  Milestone: we should be able to build gPXE with TCP support over IPv4
 +
 +  * 20 July - Investigate IPv6 support. Discuss the implementation. Sub-tasks are:
 +    - Read the relevant RFCs and understand IPv6 requirement thoroughly
 +    - Make mofidications to the network interfaces if necessary
 +    - Discuss the implementation on E-D
 +
 +  * 30 July - Implement essential IPv6 support
 +
 +  Milestone: we should be able to build UDP and TCP over IPv6 and test is sucessfully
 +
 +==== August ====
 +
 +  * Buffer and wrap-up period. Clean the code. Debug and document it.
