Subject: [Bier] Request For Comments on BIER IPv6 work and documents -- RE: Questions regarding <draft-zhang-bier-bierin6-03>


I would prefer very much the comments on the maillist about BIER IPv6.
I think it is the way we improve and progress documents, and improve the work of BIER WG.

There have been quite a number of BIERv6 drafts, and the WG had make it clear to work on "BIER natively in IPv6" in charter.

Also there have been a work achievement of BIERv6-requirements WG document since ietf104.

Also from this thread before, and from the recent BIER sessions, BIER'es have shown enthusiasm on BIER IPv6:
a) ipv6 tunnel between non-adjacent BFRs
b) situations even between adjacent BFRs.

Also as the stated by Toerless in inetf104: We need to wait for the result in SRv6 arch and encap work as they consider 8200 requirements during review. It applicable to hear as well.
I think it is more clear now, since the SRv6 SRH had LC, the SRv6 Network Programming had adopted, the SRv6-via-ISIS had adopted, and many SRv6 deployments or implementations or ongoing implementations.

Request the WG to initiate the discussions/questions/comparisons on the following BIERv6 documents:

I guess you have many comments/suggestions/questions/comparisons. Do you ?  There had been 2* 40 minutes talk at Bankok and Prague BIER sessions!

Appreciate very much for your comments/suggestions/questions/comparisons!
Appreciate very much for the guidance from Chairs and the AD!
