Technical Summary

   This document describes the OSPFv3 graceful restart.  The OSPFv3
   graceful restart is identical to OSPFv2 except for the differences
   described in this document.  These differences include the format of
   the grace Link State Advertisements (LSA) and other considerations.

Working Group Summary

   Broad consent with no dissent reported. This is very similar to the
   graceful restart mechanism used with OSPFv2 (which is already an RFC
   and is implemented and deployed). 

Document Quality

   I (Ross) think that there are implementations, but Dave or I will
   double-check prior to the telechat. 


   Abhay Roy is the document shepherd. Dave Ward is the responsible
   AD. The IANA assignments share the same IANA registry as used by 
   the existing OSPFv2 graceful restart RFC.
