This begins a 2 week WG last call for 

draft-ietf-idr-bgp-ext-com-registry-01 from 3/11 to 3/25. 


You can find the draft at: 



This draft suggest a cleanup on several BGP Extended Community registries in

order to replace the "Experimental Use" registration procedure in 

some entries, since their use is clearly not experimental and thus



In your review comments, please include whether you feel this 

draft is ready for publication. 


Since Adrian's registry draft (draft-ietf-idr-bgp-ls-registry) was 

improved when sent to a wider audience, we the bess WG 

to also provide comments.  To aid in quick review, 

I've included a short portion from the Introduction 

of this draft. 



Cheers, Sue 



[RFC7153] reorganizes the IANA registries for the type values and

sub-type values of the BGP Extended Communities attribute.  As a

result the IANA maintained registry entitled "BGP Transitive Extended

Community Types" includes a range of Type Values (0x80-0x8F) with

Experimental Use registration procedure.  Out of this experimental

range the types 0x80, 0x81, 0x82 have been assigned via [RFC5575] and

[RFC7674].  The primary use for those types and sub-type registries

is non experimental.


Section 2 of this document requests the registry cleanup to reflect

the actual use of those code-points (removing "Experimental Use" from

the sub-type registry names) and changes the registration procedure

of the types 0x80, 0x81, 0x82 to first come first serve.
