The TLVs on an IDR message will need to be done in IDR.

Dear Job,


The current version of the document is already a very limited subset of functionality mainly focusing on defining new BGP message after we took two documents (BGP Advisory and BGP Diagnostics Messages) and merged them into one document. 


Quote from section 10:


   This memo is based on existing works [I-D.ietf-idr-advisory] and
   [I-D.raszuk-bgp-diagnostic-message] which describe a number of
   operational message types documented here.


If one would define just new BGP Operational Message alone then the question will come up to provide the use cases. So here we are defining the former with few optional use cases which was operationally found to be of some use. 


Of course this is no longer individual draft but belongs to WG so what WG decides to do with it (if anything) is fine. Is core of your suggestion that it is much easier to push N TLVs each in separate draft via IDR or GROW rather then keep them in one consistent document - assuming that some of them are just optional TLVs ?

Dear robert,

Extremely happy to see your support here. 


Draft wise I think we still have sources :) But what really got this work stuck is implementations. 


Perhaps if we could make FRR and BIRD to implement it we could test it and ask for WGLC. 


Of course if there is seriou sinterest we should also ask for IANA allocations too. I think both Rob & David would be happy to see this moving forward too :) 


In order to move this forward, I think it would be good to split the draft out into the framework and then separately document the features. This allows the work to progress (in part), even when we encounter controversy.


Cutting this up in smaller chunks will increase the likelihood of reaching the finish line.


It also would make RFP / feature requesting + vendor management easier if we make sure all the documents in their entirety represent coherent building blocks.


I’m happy to work on such a proposal with you.  


Kind regards,
