Himanshu : is this service gateway based on VPWS L2vpn PW circuits.
Jorge : Yes
Himanshu : it was not allowed in past where you define inter working. there
were push back from WG. Jorge: Question is not clear to me. Himanshu : may be
change the name of draft, service interworking were having issue in past in
IETF Jorge: so service interworking means something else, then we can change
the terminology. Stephene :  we already have service interworking, so not sure
there is some issue. Matthew : its end to end EVPN . so there is no much
service interworking Loa : are we calling for adoption , if yes then we need to
hold of to that idea. Jorge: name changed very last min, and it was not updated
to chair. not looking for adoption right now.

Jeffery Haas: RD rewrites have issue.
Jorge:  we recommend RD rewrites. We can take discussion to list.

ready for adoption

ready for adoption

Jorge: you are requesting code point 2 for DF algorithm . this is already being
used. it would be good to remove it from draft.
       otherway to do it would be base 7432 which provides such mechanism and
       defines default gateway extended community. on 7432 its used for IRB and
       here its different. only difference with your use case that its not IRB
       rather its something attached to it. will discuss more in mailing list.
Saumya - Ok

Linda: why you need protocol between firewalls.
Saumya : Essentially there is one firewall, but we do not want to force it same
credential for both firewalls.
