Ballot Text

Technical Summary:

LISP is a protocol which can be used for different purposes. This draft describes
how to deploy its associated network elements, in order to identify possible
deployment scenarios and the additional requirements they may impose on the
protocol specification and other protocols. This document is intended as a guide for
the operational community for LISP deployments in their networks and is expected
to evolve as LISP deployment progresses, and the described scenarios are better
understood or new scenarios are discovered. 

Working Group Summary:

There was no controversy nor any contentious issues during the WG process. The
consensus was not rough and the draft came out as the result of a collective effort.

Document Quality:

There are multiple implementations of the protocol that am aware of. To my
knowledge, at least one vendor has implemented the specification. The draft has
received a fair amount of reviews and discussions without triggering any major
change(s) in the document nor substantive issue(s).
