From: The IESG <email@example.com> To: IETF-Announce <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: RFC Editor <email@example.com>, mpls mailing list <firstname.lastname@example.org>, mpls chair <email@example.com> Subject: Protocol Action: 'Using LDP Multipoint Extensions on Targeted LDP Sessions' to Proposed Standard (draft-ietf-mpls-targeted-mldp-04.txt) The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Using LDP Multipoint Extensions on Targeted LDP Sessions' (draft-ietf-mpls-targeted-mldp-04.txt) as Proposed Standard This document is the product of the Multiprotocol Label Switching Working Group.

Technical Summary RFC 6388 specifies how the Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) can be used to set up Point-to-Multipoint (P2MP) and Multipoint-to- Multipoint (MP2MP) Label Switched Paths. RFC 6388 presupposes that the two endpoints of an LDP session are directly connected. The LDP base specification (RFC 5036) allows for the case where the two endpoints of an LDP session are not directly connected; such a session is known as a "Targeted LDP" session. This document provides the specification for using the LDP P2MP/MP2MP extensions over a Targeted LDP session. Document Quality An implementation poll has been sent to the working group and the information on implementations will be updated as soon as we received information from this poll. There is no need for MIB Doctor or Media Type reviews. This document had a fairly normal working group last call, with good comments that have been addressed. Personnel Loa Andersson (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the document shepherd. Adrian Farrel (Adrian@olddog.co.uk) is the responsible AD.
