Ballot Text

Technical Summary

   This document specifies/clarifies/redefines certain/additional EVPN BUM procedures,
   with a salient goal that they're better aligned among MVPN, EVPN and VPLS. 
   For brevity, only changes/additions to relevant RFC 7117 and RFC 7524 procedures are specified,
   instead of repeating the entire procedures. 
   Note that these are to be applied to EVPN only,
   even though sometimes they may sound to be updates to RFC 7117/7524.

Working Group Summary

   The document went through few rounds of reviews, comments and revisions 
   and there is consensus in the WG to publish this document.

Document Quality

   The document is a stable document and supported for publication in the working group.
   At the time of WG LC there was no known implementation.
   However the WG was polled (according to policy in practice in BESS) on whether the draft should progress, and there was not any opposition to that.
