Dear chairs,

The draft in question has now implementations (as reported by Ketan) and authors believe it is ready for WGLC.
Kindly request you to start with the LC.

Thanks and have a great weekend!

> Note the expiration date. RFC 7120 talks about expiration (, the summary is that we can ask for a renewal for one more year, if we don’t, the allocation gets marked as “deprecated". The chairs often request extension without discussing it with the WG, when we know forward progress is being made. For this draft, I’m not sure progress IS being made, so I would like to get WG input. At issue is whether requirement 2(d) of RFC 7120, "sufficient interest in the community”, is still being met.
> When I look at the draft side by side with RFC 7308 I see that it’s more or less a translation, the way we often see for BGP-LS specs. Possibly in light of this the lack of WGLC response was because WG participants considered it too boring to review (sorry) and not exactly due to a lack of desire to see the document advance? On the other hand, with a cursory google search I didn’t find evidence of any vendor claiming support for RFC 7308… which, if so, doesn’t make me optimistic about implementation of this draft (and none has been reported yet, see The close tracking between bgp-ls specs and IGP specs is one place where the lack of consistency between WG policies is problematic, where we want implementation to advance to RFC and the IGPs don’t.
> Since the allocation doesn’t expire until April 9, we have a few weeks. I plan to bring this up at Monday’s meeting, although I encourage you to follow up to this thread too. But to cut to the chase, I think we either need to muster the enthusiasm to complete WGLC for this draft, in which case I will gladly request an extension of the allocation, or… not.
