Hi All,

I think I'm lost, please help.

Rakesh is talking about "co-routed associated bidirectional
LSP"... for the sake of clarity, let me try to categorize
LSPs from a control plane view point:

  a) Point-to-point unidirectional
  b) Point-to-point co-routed bidirectional
  c) Point-to-point associated bidirectional
   c1) fwd and rev LSP follow different paths
   c2) fwd and rev LSP follow same path
  d) Point-to-multipoint unidirectional
  e) Multipoint-to-point unidirectional

Is section 3.2.5 (Signaling of Co-routed LSPs) of
mpls-tp-rsvpte-ext-associated-lsp about b) or it is about c2)?

In my opinion:

- b) should be signaled with 3473
- c) are addressed by this I-D (mpls-tp-rsvpte-ext-associated-lsp)

Am I missing something?

thank you
ciao
fra

PS
from a data-plane view point b) and c2) are the same thing.

I personally think this is a practical way of keeping the process moving.  Also if the WG disagrees with a change, it can always be backed out.
