Ballot Text

Technical Summary

This memo updates the IANA IPv6 Special-Purpose Address Registries to address issues raised by the definition of a global prefix.  This memo contains all the assignments made by RFC 6890 to the IANA Special-Purpose Address Registries.

Working Group Summary

The document is not considered in any working group document. The document addresses small issues raised by RFC6890, and as such an adoption process was not believed to be necessary. Again the scope of the document is mostly focused on updating the allocation of Special Purpose Block Addresses blocks as well as updating the IPv4-IPv6 Special Purpose Addresses Registries with parameters defined by other RFCs.  This limits the possible controversies.  The update was presented at the Seoul (IETF97) intarea meeting, the drafts have been sent to the int-area mailing list and no issue has been raised.  

Document Quality

This is not a protocol description document. The main involved entity are IETF and IANA. IANA is co-authoring the draft and the IETF community is represented by the co-authors as well as by the communication through mailing lists. 


Daniel Migault is the Document Shepherd, Suresh Krishnan  is the responsible AD.
