Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <email@example.com> To: IETF-Announce <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <email@example.com>, RFC Editor <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Protocol Action: 'Extending ICMP for Interface and Next-hop Identification' to Proposed Standard The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Extending ICMP for Interface and Next-hop Identification ' <draft-atlas-icmp-unnumbered-09.txt> as a Proposed Standard This document has been reviewed in the IETF but is not the product of an IETF Working Group. The IESG contact person is Jari Arkko. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-atlas-icmp-unnumbered-09.txt
Technical Summary This draft extends ICMP to provide additional diagnostic information regarding incoming and outgoing interfaces. Working Group Summary This draft has been discussed in the Internet Area mailing list and meetings; considerable discussion happened on the topic of including next-hop information. The document is an AD sponsored submission, however. In January 2009, a late IPR declaration forced the draft to go back to the WG. It has now returned after no one objected in the new WGLC (after the new IPR license declaration was posted). In the fall of 2009, the document went through another round of WG reviews and an IETF last call was requested, as the document had been largely rewritten in the summer to address IESG review comments from the previous round. Document Quality The document has been extensively reviewed and discussed. Personnel There is no document shepherd. The responsible AD is Jari Arkko.
