Hi Yali,
Please add some more context to the draft as to how the information will be used. I say draft rather than drafts since you can really combine the OSPF draft, IS-IS draft, and BGP-LS draft into a single LSR document. For RFC 8379, we included the BGP-LS specification in the OSPF draft and the IDR chairs have agreed to this for simple encodings such as this one.

    Dear Acee,
    Thanks a lot for your comments. I have revised the title of drafts and will take your suggestion to add more text on how to use the IFIT Capability information, once the submission is opened. Here is my quick reply:
    IFIT is deployed in a specific domain referred as the IFIT domain. One network domain may consists of multiple IFIT domain. Within the IFIT domain, one or more IFIT-options are added into packet at the IFIT-enabled head node that is referred to as the “IFIT encapsulating node”. Then IFIT data fields MAY be updated by IFIT transit nodes that the packet traverses. Finally, the data fields are removed at a device that is referred to as the “IFIT decapsulating node”. 
    The IFIT data fields must not leak to other domains. So, the IFIT encapsulating node need to know if the decapsulating node is able to support the IFIT capability. So that it can decide whether to add the IFIT-option or not.
    The solution is similar to RFC8491. We use IGP to advertise the capability, so that head node can use. By using BGP-LS, a centralized controller can also learn the IFIT Capability of nodes to determine whether a particular IFIT Option type can be supported in a given network.

    Hi Yali,
    A couple of very basic comments on these drafts. They are definitely not ready for consideration. 
        1. IFIT is never expanded as an acronym. Seems it should be as early as the title. 
              OSPF extensions for Advertising In-Situ Flow Information Telemetry (IFIT) Capability
       2. You probably could come up with a more succinct acronym for IFIT. 
       3. The has no specification of how the capabilities are used. Are they purely informational?

        Dear all,
        I'm Yali. Following is a new version of I-D, draft-wang-lsr-ospf-ifit-node-capability-02 I submitted recently.
        Please let me know your questions and comments. Thank you.
        Name:		draft-wang-lsr-ospf-ifit-node-capability
        Revision:	02
        Title:		Extensions to OSPF for Advertising IFIT Node Capability
        Document date:	2020-03-09
        Group:		Individual Submission
        Pages:		7
           This document defines a way for an Open Shortest Path First (OSPF)
           router originating the RI LSA to announce IFIT node capabilities
           within the entire routing domain.  A new optional TLV is extended to
           the OSPF RI Opaque LSA [RFC7770] to carry the IFIT node capability
           information.  Such advertisements enable IFIT applications in an
           operational network domain.  Here, the term "OSPF" includes both
           OSPFv2 and OSPFv3.
        Best regards,
