Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: IETF-Announce <email@example.com> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <firstname.lastname@example.org>, RFC Editor <email@example.com> Subject: Protocol Action: 'Management Information Base for the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)' to Proposed Standard The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Management Information Base for the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) ' <draft-ietf-ipv6-rfc2012-update-07.txt> as a Proposed Standard This document is the product of the IP Version 6 Working Group.

Technical Summary This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in the Internet community. In particular, it describes managed objects used for implementations of the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) in an IP version independent manner. This memo obsoletes RFCs 2012 and 2452. It accomplishes this by utilizing the InetAddress TC to provide IP address-independence on the management objects. This allows a single MIB to provide the same level of management for IPv4 and IPv6. Working Group Summary This document was produced by the IPv6 WG. There was strong WG consensus for this document in both the IPv6 working group and the IPv6 MIB design team. This document through WG last call and was updated to address last call comments. Protocol Quality This document has undergone significant review by management experts. In particular, Kristine Adamson has raised several important points from an implementation point of view. This document was reviewed for the IESG by Margaret Wasserman.
