Technical Summary
 
 The documents included in this package provide the technical specification,
 the MIB module description and the supporting documentation for the revision
 of the BGPv4 protocol. BGPv4 is a path-vector routing protocol currently used
 in the Internet for classless IPv4 inter-domain routing. The protocol allows 
 a certain degree of policy routing among the domains.
 
Working Group Summary
 
 The WG has been working on the revised version of the protocol specification
 for the last few years. Discussions on specific issues and related consensus
 assessment have been documented. Documents in the package have passed the WG
 LC, and are now ready for the IESG review.
 
Protocol Quality
 
 BGPv4 is widely implemented and deployed. The implementations are tested for
 interoperability between different vendors on a regular basis. The
 specification has been reviewed thoroughly my numerous WG participants,
 members of the Routing Area directorate, and Area Directors.

   advancing a routing protocol from Draft Standard to full Standard
   have been satisfied by Border Gateway Protocol version 4 (BGP-4).

NEW:
   The purpose of this report is to document how the requirements for
   publication of a routing protocol as an Internet Draft Standard
   have been satisfied by Border Gateway Protocol version 4 (BGP-4).
