The IESG has received a request from the Pseudowire Emulation Edge to
Edge WG (pwe3) to consider the following document:
- 'Requirements and Framework for Point-to-Multipoint Pseudowires over
  <draft-ietf-pwe3-p2mp-pw-requirements-07.txt> as Informational RFC

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 2014-03-27. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


   This document presents a set of requirements and a framework for
   providing a Point-to-Multipoint Pseudowire (PW) over MPLS PSNs.  The
   requirements identified in this document are related to architecture,
   signaling and maintenance aspects of Point-to-Multipoint PW
   operation.  They are proposed as guidelines for the standardization
   of such mechanisms.  Among other potential applications, Point-to-
   Multipoint PWs can be used to optimize the support of multicast layer
   2 services (Virtual Private LAN Service and Virtual Private Multicast
   Service) as defined in the Layer 2 Virtual Private Network Working
