Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <email@example.com> To: IETF-Announce <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: The IESG <email@example.com>, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, Shwetha Bhandari <firstname.lastname@example.org>, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, Samita Chakrabarti <email@example.com>, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com Subject: Protocol Action: 'Packet Delivery Deadline time in 6LoWPAN Routing Header' to Proposed Standard (draft-ietf-6lo-deadline-time-05.txt) The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Packet Delivery Deadline time in 6LoWPAN Routing Header' (draft-ietf-6lo-deadline-time-05.txt) as Proposed Standard This document is the product of the IPv6 over Networks of Resource-constrained Nodes Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Éric Vyncke and Suresh Krishnan. A URL of this Internet Draft is: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-6lo-deadline-time/
Technical Summary RFC 8138 specifies the 6LoWPAN Routing Header (6LoRH), compression schemes for RPL routing (source routing) operation [RFC6554], header compression of RPL Packet Information [RFC6553], and IP-in-IP encapsulation. This document specifies a new Deadline-6LoRHE type for the 6LoWPAN Dispatch Page 1, so that the deadline time of data packets can be included within the 6LoWPAN routing header. This document also specifies handling of the deadline time when packets traverse through time-synchronized networks operating in different timezones or distinct reference clocks. Time synchronization is not mandated in this document, rather it points to different available time synchronization solutions for low power and lossy networks. Working Group Summary Working group has provided many input towards development of the document during the initial phase before it is becoming a WG document. Once these comments were incorporated into the document, the draft went for successful adoption call. After that two reviewers provided thorough comments including the shepherd. Working group has a rough consensus to move this draft towards IESG submission. Document Quality draft-ietf-6lo-deadline-time-01 has been implemented in open source OpenWSN environment and got merged with the main distribution. The github links for this is available at: https://github.com/openwsn-berkeley/openwsn-fw/tree/develop/openapps/uexpiration https://github.com/openwsn-berkeley/openwsn-fw/pull/355 The shepherd or working group are unaware of any forthcoming vendor implementation of the document, however openwsn source code is used by many low power vendors(6tisch). The working group has provided feedback to the document - https://mailarchive.ietf.org/arch/browse/6lo/?q=6lo-deadline-time Geoorge Papadopoulos and Samita Chakrabarti reviewed the recent document version -01. Previously the working group commented on the non-working group version of the document and the comments are available at: https://mailarchive.ietf.org/arch/browse/6lo/?q=6lo-expiration Personnel Shwetha Bhandari is the document shepherd. Suresh Krishnan is the responsible area director.
