Dear Pascal, Thomas,

I will address the little indications given by Pascal and then publish v15. Is that fine?

thanks so much!

I went through the changes between v14 and v15 on the bitbucket repo and agree with the changes made.

Hello Xavi:

I'm not asking for any change change but editorials. In particular I do not see a need to say that minimal could be disabled. Anything can be disabled, it's always an admin decision to implement a protocol. The important thing is that minimal does not preclude the use of other TSCH traffic on other timeslots.

As I reread the draft, I have some editorial suggestions, feel free to pick or not:

"bitmap in the active cell indicate that a node" -> indicates?
"This results in ''Slotted Aloha'' behavior" -> This results in a behavior that is similar to that of ''Slotted Aloha''.
"acknowledgement" -> acknowledgment
"neighbour" -> neighbor
"EBs MUST NOT be used for time" -> EBs are not used for time
"rank" -> Rank  (when talking about RPL's Rank)
"Routing extension headers such as RPI and SRH and inner
   IP headers MUST be compressed according to [RFC6282],
   [I-D.ietf-6lo-routing-dispatch] and [I-D.ietf-6lo-paging-dispatch]."
Routing extension headers such as RPI [RFC6550] and SRH [RFC6554], and outer
   IP headers in case on encapsulation MUST be compressed according to
   [I-D.ietf-6lo-routing-dispatch] and [I-D.ietf-6lo-paging-dispatch].

Also: [I-D.ietf-6lo-routing-dispatch] and [I-D.ietf-6lo-paging-dispatch] should be normative references. Should not delay minimal if we last call soon.

Take care,
