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>, isis mailing list <firstname.lastname@example.org>, isis chair <email@example.com> Subject: Protocol Action: 'Simplified Extension of LSP Space for IS-IS' to Proposed Standard The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Simplified Extension of LSP Space for IS-IS ' <draft-ietf-isis-wg-extlsp-06.txt> as a Proposed Standard This document is the product of the IS-IS for IP Internets Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Ross Callon and David Ward. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-isis-wg-extlsp-06.txt
Technical Summary This draft describes a simplified method for extending the LSP space beyond the 256 Link State PDU (LSP) limit defined in [IS-IS]. This method is intended as a preferred replacement for the method defined in [RFC 3786]. This draft obsoletes RFC3786. Working Group Summary Strong WG consensus is reported. There were no objections during WG and IETF last calls. While this document obsoletes a previously published alternate approach, there is no known implementation of the previous approach. Document Quality There are no current existing implementations, but there are plans to implement the approach in this draft. There are no known implementations of RFC 3786 (that this draft obsoletes), and no known plans to implement RFC3786. Personnel Chris Hopps is the Document Shepherd for this document. Ross Callon is the Responsible Area Director. RFC Editor Note In three places in the text the document references [M-IS-IS], which references RFC5210. It would be more consistent with other references to change all occurrences of "[M-IS-IS]" to be "[RFC5210]". Also, RFC5120 should be moved from the informative references section to the normative references section. Section 7 (Security Considerations). Please append the following sentence to the end of the one existing paragraph in this section: For general security considerations for IS-IS see [RFC5304]. Section 9.2, Please add an informative reference to RFC 5304. Section 1, first sentence, Please replace "LSP" with "Link State PDU (LSP)".
