Ballot Text

Technical Summary

   This specification provides the ability to provide IPv6 traffic
   engineering information within IS-IS. The design very closely
   parallels the IPv4 specification.

Working Group Summary

   There consensus was strong for this specification. There was 
   very little discussion as the implementation and need were 
   fairly obvious. 

Document Quality

   There are currently no known implementations of this 
   specification. The quality of the protocol extension though 
   can easily be measured by it's analogous IPv4 implementation 
   which is widely implemented.
