I’ve read the draft, I support publication. This is a necessary mechanism for managing BGP in the modern Internet, and IMO long overdue. Thanks to the authors and implementers that have pushed this forward.

Subject: [Idr] WG LC on draft-ietf-idr-large-community-03.txt (10/17/2016 to 10/31/2016)

This begins a 2 week WG LC on draft-ietf-idr-large-community-03.txt.  (10/17 to 10/31).   Please comment if draft-ietf-idr-large-community-03.txt  is ready for publication.

If you have concerns with the text,  please be very specific about what is wrong and what needs to change.  If you have concerns about operational aspects, please give a complete description of the problem and why this draft does not solve it.

This WG LC is not a place to debate whether we should have adopted this technology.

The focus of WG LC is whether this technology has implementations (see IDR wiki for examples),  and whether these implementation inter-operate.  It is also important to consider deployment issue or problems on currently.

Sue Hares and John Scudder
