The IESG contact persons are Alvaro Retana, Alia Atlas and Deborah Brungard. A URL of this Internet Draft is: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-ospf-encapsulation-cap/
Technical Summary This document specifies extensions to OSPF Router Informational (RI) to advertise multiple node tunnel capabilities and associated tunnel parameters (e.g., endpoint). These tunnel capabilities can then be used to determine whether an OSPF router can act as the endpoint for a specific tunnel type (i.e., encapsulation). Working Group Summary There was concern that the document didn't satisfy a real requirement and was unnecessary. Much of the debate transpired in the IS-IS WG. Subsequently, consensus was reached on the attendant use cases. Document Quality This document has been a WG document for more than 1 1/2 years and has been stable other than addressing minor comments. I do not know of implementations. Personnel Acee Lindem is the Document Shepherd. Alia Atlas is the Responsible Area Director.
