Liaisons referring to this one: Response to Liaison concerning approval of MPLS-TP Documents
Attachments: (none)
The IESG has just approved three Internet-Drafts for publication as
Informational RFCs. They are:


With this approval, these documents will be placed in the RFC Editor
queue next

The document draft-betts-itu-oam-ach-code-point formally requests IANA
allocate a Pseudowire Associated Channel Type for G.8113.1. Since
G.8113.1 is a
normative reference in this document, RFC publication and code point
registration cannot happen until G.8113.1 is approved by the ITU-T for
publication. When the ITU-T approves G.8113.1 for publication, please
send a
Liaison Statement to the IETF Routing Area so that the IANA can
register and
publish the Pseudowire Associated Channel Type, and the final
processing of the
RFC can be triggered. 

Please note that the IESG will insert the following note at the top of
the RFC
when it is published. This note can be seen in the IETF datatracker
along with
the IESG's individual comments at

The IESG notes that the IETF has developed a set of OAM
tools for MPLS-TP that have been published as Standards
Track RFCs. A list of the relevant RFCs can be found in 
RFC xxxx. The approval of this document and the
assignment of an ACh Type does not constitute
endorsement by the IETF of the alternate MPLS-TP OAM
documented in G.8113.1. The IESG recommends instead
that the RFCs noted above should be implemented.

[RFC Editor - please replace xxxx with the RFC number 
assigned to draft-ietf-mpls-tp-oam-analysis.]
