"
- Adopt BIERin6
- Discuss BIERv6 further
"

I will leave all the technical issues for BIERin6 in another thread to make the discussion coherent. But I can't see the process mentioned above makes any sense. All the optional solutions are supposed to be evaluated on the same footing. If both technically practical and meet all the requirements, both should be accepted. Besides the technical considerations mentioned above, I believe there should not be any other factors that interfere with the WG process.

Subject: RE: draft-ietf-bier-ipv6-requirements-09

To clarify, there is no gap in the BIERin6 solution (besides the new "next header" code point). It's just that some text are needed to explain how the requirements are met with the BIERin6 solution - whether it is a requirement already listed in the current requirements draft, or have been brought up in recent mailing list discussions (I know of two in recent discussions).

BIERin6 is based on RFC 8296 (plus the new "next header" code point for IPv6 encapsulation), and is a generic solution with the following properties:

1. clean layering - BIER over L2/tunnel and it can carry different payload types including SRv6 2. IPv4/IPv6 independent (of course you need different signaling) 3. L2 independent - as long as the L2 header can indicate with a code point that a BIER header follows 4. tunnel type independent - as long as the tunnel header can indicate with a code point that a BIER header follows 5. can work one-hop or multi-hop tunnels nicely 6. can work with SRv6 based services nicely

With the above, there is simply no need for another solution in my view. Of course the WG can continue discussing BIERv6 and may determine that it is nice to have BIERv6 as well, but we should not bundle them together when it comes to adoption. That's why I suggested in the last BIER session the following:

- Adopt BIERin6
- Discuss BIERv6 further

Hi Greg,

I'm sure I'm misinterpreting. What it sounds like you are saying is "I want bierin6 to be adopted so let's fix the gaps so we can begin". Since both solutions meet the requirements, I'm hoping you meant "Let's fix the gaps in bierin6 so we can begin adoption calls for both bierv6 and bierin6".
