This email concludes the adoption call on "The IPv6 Compact Routing Header (CRH)”.

There have been requests to contact the Routing ADs on this topic, this has been started via our Internet ADs.

The chairs and ADs will spend the next few weeks reviewing the responses and make a decision on adoption.

This has been a very heated discussion with several instances of non-constructive behaviour.   Please exercise restraint on future posts.  We note that it doesn’t help to repeat the same thing multiple times or respond to every email.
