Technical Summary

   TRILL supports multi-access LAN links that can have multiple end
   stations and RBridges attached. This document describes four aspects
   of the TRILL LAN Hello protocol used on such links, particularly
   adjacency, designated RBridge selection, and MTU and pseudonode
   procedures, with state machines. There is no change for IS-IS point-
   to-point Hellos used on links configured as point-to-point in TRILL.

Working Group Summary

   This document was developed in the TRILL working group with significant
   review from participants in the IS-IS WG. The scope of the document
   is based on a list of four items where that the IESG wanted to see
   clarified for the TRILL LAN Hello protocol.

Document Quality

    There are implementations of TRILL that were developed without the
