> BGP is arguably the most important protocol on the Internet: it pieces together every single AS, is used by thousands of organizations, and has been the subject of countless discussions. It is simple and complex at the same time. The idr WG, as the shepherd of inter-domain routing in the IETF, reflects the importance of BGP. Thus, the WG needs to be chaired by recognized experts in the field. John has represented idr very well.
> In consultation with Sue and the other ADs, we have asked Keyur Patel and Jeff Haas to join Sue as idr Co-Chairs. Both are experienced chairs (sidrops and bfd, respectively) and have significantly contributed to BGP and the IETF.
