The IESG has received a request from the IS-IS for IP Internets WG (isis)

- 'IS-IS Minimum Remaining Lifetime'
  <draft-ietf-isis-remaining-lifetime-01.txt> as Proposed Standard

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the mailing lists by 2016-08-15. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.

   vector.  This document defines a backwards compatible solution to
   this problem.
