The IDR Charter was last revised in March, 2010. 


It's time to reconsider what needs to go in the charter: 


Somethings we might include are:

.         BGP Yang modules, 

.         A general BGP Layer 3 auto-configuration or liveness, 

.         Additional  tunnel features for a optional tunnel encapsulation (a
follow-on to draft-ietf-idr-tunnel-encaps), 

.         Upgrade of the base BGP specification to Full Standard, 

.         Flow specification additions, 

.         BGP-LS basic functions (e.g.
draft-ketant-idr-rfc7752bis-00) error handling

.         Segment routing additions to BGP, 

.         Wide Communities and other "bigger" communities , 

.         Revisions to Existing features. 



Things which will be removed because we are done: 

.         Support for 4-octet AS numbers, 

.         Add path related additions, 

.         Error handling rules for BGP in general, 

.         Revisions to the BGP 'Minimum Route Advertisement Interval', 

.         The definition of an "Accumulated IGP Metric".


In 2010, IDR started an advancement of BGP to full standard, but stopped. 

WG members indicated they wanted us to focus on the feature revisions. 


Is there anything we missed? 


Please use this thread to suggest things we should keep or drop in the


Cheerily, Susan Hares
