Body
Thank you for your liaison containing draft-andersson-mpls-tp-process-02.  We
have reviewed this draft and we now understand the process and will provide
the appropriate interaction to ensure the smooth development and review of
MPLS-TP RFCs.
We request that you modify the draft to provide the following clarifications:
•	Indicate that informal (email) communications are sent to the ITU-T via the
ahmpls-tp email list maintained by the ITU.  
•	Indicate that all MEAD team MPLS-TP documents include “mpls-tp” in the file
name.
•	In Step 15 of the process, please confirm that if changes are made at this
stage the draft will be sent to the ITU for a further review before final
approval.
•	Expand the description of step 7 to show both the 7 and 7a paths.
•	Expand the description of step 14 to explicitly show the 14a and 14b paths.
•	Add a description of steps 14 & 15 in section 3
