The IESG has received a request from the Congestion Exposure WG (conex)
to consider the following document:
- 'IPv6 Destination Option for Congestion Exposure (ConEx)'
  <draft-ietf-conex-destopt-09.txt> as Experimental RFC

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
ietf@ietf.org mailing lists by 2015-08-31. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to iesg@ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


Congestion Exposure (ConEx) is a mechanism by which senders inform
the network about the congestion encountered by packets earlier in
the same flow.  This document specifies an IPv6 destination option
that is capable of carrying ConEx markings in IPv6 datagrams.
