The IESG has no problem with the publication of 'DSL Forum 
Vendor-Specific RADIUS Attributes' 
<draft-mammoliti-radius-dsl-vsa-04.txt> as an Informational RFC. 

The IESG would also like the IRSG or RFC-Editor to review the comments in

Technical Summary
 
   This document describes the set of Remote Authentication Dial in User
   Service Vendor-Specific Attributes (RADIUS VSAs) defined by the DSL
   Forum.
 
   These attributes are designed to transport Digital Subscriber Line
   (DSL) information which is not supported by the standard RADIUS
   attribute set.  It is expected that this document will be updated if
   and when the DSL Forum defines additional vendor-specific attribute,
   since its primary purpose is to provide a reference for DSL equipment
   vendors wishing to interoperate with other vendors' products.
 
Working Group Summary
 
 This is Individual submission to the RFC Editor. 

 The RADEXT WG Chair reviewed the document. The usage of  Vendor Specific   
 Attributes (VSAs) by other SDOs is an open issue in the RADEXT WG, and 
 some particpants are of the opinion that no guarantee can be given about
 interoperability, but this does not prevent the publication of the document
 as an Informational RFC. 
  
Protocol Quality
 
 This document is a individual submission to the RFC Editor and targets
 Informational RFC. The document  was reviewed by David Nelson (RADEXT WG   
 chair) for compatibility with the RADIUS process and attributes space and by 
 Joel Halpern for the RFC Editor.
