Hi there!

I would like to propose a new idea of how to simplify the debugging
process when dealing with lots of different BGP speakers and even more
with different versions.

Basically, the implementation is very trivial, but it would be handy
in cases when you should debug why some functionality does not work
between two or more BGP speakers. Having this in place would speedup
troubleshooting time. Even better if that comes to automation to
gather information around all infrastructure you have.

The implementation and details are posted in this draft:
https://www.ietf.org/id/draft-abraitis-bgp-version-capability-00.txt

Waiting for comments.

Thank you!
