The IESG contact persons are Warren Kumari, Benoit Claise and Terry Manderson. A URL of this Internet Draft is: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-anima-prefix-management/
Technical Summary Relevant content can frequently be found in the abstract This document describes an autonomic solution for IPv6 prefix management at the edge of large-scale ISP networks, with an extension to support IPv4 prefixes. An important purpose of the document is to use it for validation of the design of various components of the autonomic networking infrastructure. Working Group Summary This document was called draft-jiang-anima-prefix-management prior to its adoption. There was consenus support for it in favor of adoption, so this document was adopted in January 2016. There was interest in this work posts since its adoption. There was no opposition to this work. This document went through a relevant long document development period (15 months for individual document period, 30 month for WG document period). It has been reviewed well. Document Quality Huawei has expressed interest in implementation. There is a prototype implementation at: https://github.com/becarpenter/graspy/blob/master/pfxm3.pdf https://github.com/becarpenter/graspy/blob/master/pfxm3.py Personnel Toerless Eckert is the document shepherd. Terry Manderson is the responsible AD. IANA Note The IANA is requested to add two names to GRASP Objective Names Table registry defined by [I-D.ietf-anima-grasp] (registry already crated). "PrefixManager" and "PrefixManager.Params". I did review/discuss these names during shepherd review. I think these allocations establish a useful precedent of making multiple objectives of one functional area use a common prefix.
