    * Approval agenda

        * Michael suggests to add a discussion on ethertype at 6lo during the
        6LoRH section

    * Approval minutes last call: Agenda and last call minutes have been

    * Milestones presented
    * submission the minimal draft. In AD evaluation state.

* Next steps for 6P and SF0 _[40min]_

    * Diego presenting

        * details of the Evolution of 6p and SF0 drafts
        * started with the OTF draft and 6top sublayer draft
        * 6top sublayer evolved to 6P
        * OTF evolved to the SF0
        * 6top sublayer monitors the cells and move if they are underperforming.
        * the monitoring process is described in the SF
        * Pascal suggests to rename draft 6tisch sublayer to 6top protocol.
        > ACTION rename it to 6top-protocol. Authors agree. Do it before

    *  6P open issues:
        * parent preference, child proposes slots that cannot be used (black
        list), the parent selects and child acks * use a data packet to piggy
        back the  IE with the confirmation ? * details on why this approach.
        The idea is that the parent select. Not clear yet if this is the best
        approach. Discussion about low latency approaches where the child
        really wants one specific cells. * Qin Wang: using the container as the
        base to determine the cell or the slot. We need a mechanism to
        reference a cell in a chunk to the global schedule structure. *
        consider to redefine the name of the container to metadata so the SF
        can use it for any purpose, e.g indicating the container or indicating
        who has the responsability to select the cells (parent or child) >
        ACTION: to rename the field container to metadata.

        * Conclusion: take 2 bits from the NumCells field
        * Discussion about the need for a token during the transactions. THe
        idea is to identify a request and a response with a token. Need to
        understand if there is the need for that item. * Sedat Gormus:
        indicates that from an implementation perspective this is useful and

* draft-thubert-6lo-inner-compression _[10min]_

    * New draft, problem to solve is that in IP in IP we cannot use the outer
    header to compress the inner header if some addresses are taken from the
    same prefix. * Enables stateless address compression for the inner header.
    * MR: why do not use a context to compress that inner header? * PT: you do
    not need to use RAs to distribute the context. * PT: you avoid distributing
    the same prefix twice. * MR: why we should do it in that way and not using
    a RPL context. * PT: this requires a discussion, let us take it to the
    mailing list

* 6LoRH to last call? _[5min]_
    * PT: updated it after the PlugTest.
    * PT: almost done. Check if people agree and ask for Last Call at 6lo.
    * TW: Makes sense to ask for presenting at Buenos Aires and then ask for
    last call there. * TW: Michael asked to discuss Ethertype * PT: Michael
    just left, this is top of the hour. This is a discussion at 6lo * TW:
    Ethertype to  be done in the next call? * PT: Best is to read the 6lo
    thread and discuss there

* AOB _[1min]_
    * no other B.
