The IESG has approved the following document:
- 'BLACKHOLE BGP Community for Blackholing'
  (draft-ietf-grow-blackholing-03.txt) as Informational RFC

Technical Summary

  This document describes the use of a well-known Border Gateway
   Protocol (BGP) community for blackholing at IP networks and Internet
   Exchange Points (IXP).  This well-known advisory transitive BGP
   community, namely BLACKHOLE, allows an origin AS to specify that a
   neighboring IP network or IXP should blackhole a specific IP prefix.

Working Group Summary

The working group had decent discussion on this draft and consensus on content/intent.

Document Quality

The proposal does not include code requirements, but does include use of a  standard bgp community 'BLACKHOLE' to accomplish a task (discard traffic inside the connected networks).

The IETF Last call resulted in significant changes to the document inclusive of a change to the intended state to informational.
