The IESG has received a request from the Routing Over Low power and Lossy
networks WG (roll) to consider the following document:
- 'Multicast Protocol for Low power and Lossy Networks (MPL)'
  <draft-ietf-roll-trickle-mcast-06.txt> as Proposed Standard

This is a second last call, the first one having been abandoned to send
the document back to the working group. But the latest revision addresses
comments that were received during the first last call.

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 2014-02-07. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


   This document specifies the Multicast Protocol for Low power and
   Lossy Networks (MPL) that provides IPv6 multicast forwarding in
   constrained networks.  MPL avoids the need to construct or maintain
   any multicast forwarding topology, disseminating messages to all MPL
   Forwarders in an MPL Domain.  MPL uses the Trickle algorithm to
   manage message transmissions for both control and data-plane
   messages.  Different Trickle parameter configurations allow MPL to
   trade between dissemination latency and transmission efficiency.
