Yes, I meant request a new attribute number for large communities.

Hi!  Thanks for the summary!

 

I think you meant “request a new attribute number for *large* communities” below.

 

Please follow the process in rfc7120: you send me the formal request, I approve, and then you (Chairs) request the allocation from IANA.  Now that -04 was published we should be ready to go.  We should be able to include the 2 deprecated values in the same request.

 

Thanks!

 

Alvaro.

Thank you for your input on the question of whether Large communities should be reassigned another attribute number due to Huawei squatting on attribute 30.  The WG consensus is that the IDR WG wishes to have IANA deprecate attribute 30, and reassign large communities another attribute number for its early allocation.    

 

Alvaro should request a new attribute number for wide communities.
