Technical Summary

      This document specifies auto-configuration of OSPFv3 routers in
      certain environments that require auto-configuration, such as in a
      small IPv6 network like a home network.  To facilitate
      auto-configuration, this document specifies the default
      configuration, allows more flexibility in some verifications
      required by the OSPFv3 specification, and also describes a
      possible collision as well as the mechanism to resolve the 

Working Group Summary

      The OSPFv3 router ID collision detection and resolution was a
      heated point of discussion a few months ago, but the issue has
      been resolved by IETF 89.  The technical aspect of the document,
      both within the document and mailing list discussions, have been
      stable for the last six months.

Document Quality

      This document has been a WG document for a little under two years.
      It is stable, without changes to the technical solution for more
      than six months.  There are also two implementations based on this
      document already.  There is potentially a third implementation
      which implements parts of this draft.
