Technical Summary

This document describes extensions to Resource Reservation Protocol -
Traffic Engineering (RSVP-TE) for locally protecting the egress
node(s) of a Point-to-Point (P2P) or Point-to-Multipoint (P2MP)
Traffic Engineered (TE) Label Switched Path (LSP).

Working Group Summary

This document moved from the MPLS WG to TEAS WG as part of the 
routing WG changes. The document was adopted by the MPLS WG in
March 2014 and it has gone through several iterations since then. 
There was a virtual interim meeting held in January 2016 to help 
get things moving for the draft. There were also some issues 
(including a serious backwards compatibility issue) found by the 
Shepherd after the WG Last Call. An informal 1-week Last Call was 
needed after these issues got addressed.
Document Quality

The base MPLS RSVP protocol has been implemented. The extensions 
defined in this document are compatible with earlier implementations.  
While there have been no public statements on implementation, the 
authors are from multiple vendors, and implementation is expected.
