Technical Summary This document extends Automatic Multicast Tunnelling (AMT, RFC 7450) to allow the relay discovery process to use a new AMTRELAY DNS resource record for discovering source-specific multicast channels. This allows a set of AMT relays that can receive and forward multicast traffic from a sender to be advertised via reverse IP entries in DNS, hence the DNS Reverse IP AMT Discovery or DRIAD name. Working Group Summary There was no particular controversy in the WG process, and consensus was good. Document Quality The document is well written, explaining the basic mode of operation clearly, and including many example use cases. Personnel Tim Chown (email@example.com) is DS Warren Kumari is RAD!
