Hi everyone,

while reading a redmine discussion
(http://redmine.named-data.net/issues/1999) I found the idea to
introduce a NDN link layer (2.5) to perform retransmissions below the
strategy layer.

I find this concept very interesting. However, I didn't find much about 
this on the web.

Can you tell me the current state of these ideas?

Thanks a lot,
