When the work on MPLS based Transport Networks were started we anticipated that would be a lot of work and involve a number of people that were not used to the operations of IETF working groups. In order to focus and make it easier to follow the transport profile specific work the mpls-tp mailing list were started, while the mpls working group mailing should be used for other discussions. Evaluating the situation it turns out that instead of increased focus we have had an increased number of cross-posting and fragmented discussions as people sub-scribed to only on list has tried to respond to discussions going on on the other list. This means that the positive contribution of the mpls-tp mailing list is small, but the administrative effort to maintain a mailing list is not negligible. The mpls working group chairs has decided to close mpls-tp mailing list and re-direct all mpls work to the working group mailing list. Those subscribed to the mpls-tp list only will have to subscribe to the mpls working group mailing list. Please stat already now to direct all mpls-tp mails to email@example.com.
