Technical Summary

This document describes extensions to the Path Computation Element (PCE)
communication Protocol (PCEP) to handle requests and responses for the
computation of paths for Point to Multipoint (P2MP) Traffic Engineered
Label Switched Paths (TE LSPs).  This document corrects several errata
in the original RFC 6006.

Working Group Summary

There was no controversy in the working group.  The only changes
relative to RFC 6006 are straightforward errata corrections.  This
document progressed rapidly through the working group.

Document Quality

There is at least one implementation of this protocol, which
is why the errata in RFC 6006 were raised, and are now being fixed.
