Technical Summary This document specifies a CLASSTYPE object to support Diff-Serve Aware Traffic Engineering (DS-TE) where path computation is performed with an aid of Path Computation Element (PCE). Working Group Summary Good consensus reported (see PROTO writeup by JP Vasseur). The document specifies fairly straightforward protocol extensions to support diff serve when using PCE. Document Quality No known implementation of the I-D but several mentioned that they were planning to implement the protocol extensions specifies in the document. Furthermore, the protocol extensions are very straightforward. Personnel JP Vasseur is the Document Shepherd for this document. Ross Callon is the Responsible Area Director. RFC Editor Note The title and abstract spell diff-serv differently (Diff-Serv versus Diff-Serve). Please change these to be "Diff-Serv". Section 3.3, paragraph 6 please reword as follows: OLD A PCE that recognizes the CLASSTYPE object finds that P flag is not set in the CLASSTYPE object, it MUST send PCE error message towards the sender with the with the error type and error value specified in [PCEP-ID]. NEW A PCE that recognizes the CLASSTYPE object, but finds that the P flag is not set in the CLASSTYPE object, MUST send a PCE error message towards the sender with the error type and error value specified in [PCEP-ID].
