Technical Summary: This document enables an entity not directly involved in DHCPv6 client - server transactions to keep current with the state of the DHCPv6 lease state information in real-time. Working Group Summary: This document was called draft-raghuvanshi-dhc-dhcpv6-active-leasequery prior to its adoption. There was unanimous support for it in favor of adoption and none against), so this document was adopted in December 2013. There was interest in this work posts since its adoption. There was never any opposition for this work. This document went through a relevant short document development period (2 months for individual document period, 4 month for WG document period). Its maturity took advantages from its twin-document - "Active DHCPv4 Lease Query" draft-ietf-dhc-dhcpv4-active-leasequery, which firstly submitted in early 2010. Document Quality: I'm not aware of any existing implementations, but the authors claimed they have customers using DHCPv4 active leasequery. It is reasonable to assume these customers would require DHCPv6 active leasequery as long as their network extend to IPv6. No external requirements are needed as this work is purely DHCPv6 extension. There was a few reviews by DHC WG members. This document has requested publication in mid of 2014, and received a AD review from Ted Lemon. The authors updated the document in March 2015 to address the comments from AD review. Personnel: Who is the Document Shepherd? Who is the Responsible Area Director? Sheng Jiang is the document shepherd. Brian Haberman is the responsible AD.
