Branches: MAIN
CVS tags: HEAD
Prune ill-specified projects; just leave traces of them in the "ideas" page.

Not all of the unclassified projects were useless though; some of them had
decent content, so I have just added tags to classify them appropriately
instead of just deleting them.

title="Packet Latency Library"


[David Young](

duration="3 months"

Write a library of routines that estimate the expected transmission
duration of a queue of 802.3 or 802.11 frames based on the current bit
rate, applicable overhead, and the backoff level.  The kernel will use
this library to help it decide when packet queues have grown too long in
order to mitigate "buffer bloat."
