Darren,
Lots of thanks for the clarification.

However, I have several issues with your response:

1.       The SRH draft is a 6MAN document. I am not sure if the provision for new documents defining new SID types and their handling means that such definitions can be done in the documents handled by other WGs, especially since we see strong opposition to these changes from several participants of the 6MAN WG. (To make it clear, I am not a 6MAN WG member, and personally  neutral about PSP - but I am worried about the IETF process)

2.       The SRv6 Network  Programming draft has a Normative reference to the SRH draft, but it does not ever mentions that it updates it (not in the text and not in the Metadata).

3.       Section 4.3.1 of the SRH draft defines the behavior associated with the SRv6 SID that is locally instantiated, and explains that other SID types may be defined. But PSP-flavored SIDs are NOT locally instantiated in the penultimate node, they are instantiated in the ultimate node of the path. Therefore (and I may be too literal in my interpretation of the SRH draft), I think that the provision for new documents defining new SID types only applies to locally instantiated SIDs of the handling node  and does not cover the PSP case.

In my original email I have suggested to the PSP/USP proponents to post a draft that updates the SRH one (or the RFC that hopefully soon will be published) - and to run it thru the 6MAN WG in the usual manner. I understand that his will take time, but I still think that this would be the most appropriate way to resolve the current conflict that has already gone too far.

Regards,
Sasha

Hi Sasha,

I think this question got lost in the other emails around this time.  Thanks for asking though and, let me clarify.

The SRH doc was built with section 4.3.1<https://clicktime.symantec.com/3LLGD1Uzfhu26ZSxmbnqzXQ6H2?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftools.ietf.org%2Fhtml%2Fdraft-ietf-6man-segment-routing-header-26%23section-4.3.1> stating:
"Future documents may define additional SRv6 SIDs.  In which case, the entire
   content of this section will be defined in that document.”


So draft-ietf-6man-segment-routing header explicitly gives other documents the ability to fully define new SIDs.
In those documents the behavior of those SIDs would be fully defined, regardless of the text in section 4.3.1.

draft-ietf-spring-srv6-network-programming is one of those documents, there are others that are and will be written defining new SID behaviors and their processing, this was expected and is necessary for the definition of new SIDs and their behaviors.

Thanks,
  Darren

Hi all,
I cannot say whether PSP is allowed or disallowed by RFC 8200.

But, to the best of my understanding,  format of SRH and its handling are specified by the IPv6 Segment Routing Header<https://clicktime.symantec.com/3UnfQgAfW5ZSe3uASGKwXGq6H2?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftools.ietf.org%2Fhtml%2Fdraft-ietf-6man-segment-routing-header-26> draft that is owned by the 6MAN WG and is already in the RFC Editor queue. Specifically, handling of the SRH by the Segment End Point ((of which PSP is a special use case) is defined in Section 4.3.1.1 and says:

   S01. When an SRH is processed {
   S02.   If Segments Left is equal to zero {
   S03.     Proceed to process the next header in the packet,
            whose type is identified by the Next Header field in
            the Routing header.
   S04.   }
   S05.   Else {

I.e., 6MAN WG did not define any special processing of the SRH by the penultimate segment endpoint. And the processing it has defined in the ultimate segment endpoint  does not mention removal of the SRH either.

I do not think that SPRING WG can change these definitions by and of itself.  If PSP is so important, a new individual draft updating the (yet unpublished) RFC defining the SRH has to be submitted and discussed in the 6MAN WG in accordance with the normal IETF process.

This is really not helpful, Fernando, and goes some way toward explaining why communication isn’t happening.

What I reacted to in Brian’s message is that he asked a really simple question that could be readily answered with a pointer to the text in the document where the answer is given.  Since the response was instead to explain in email, that tells me that the spec is incomplete.

Separately, Brian mentioned that there is an issue with RFC8200 that would require an update, that discussions had occurred around this, but then the work never happened.   It’s reasonable to raise an objection to proceeding with work that depends on other work that hasn’t been done.

What I objected to in Maojianwei’s comment is the notion that the document should pass last call to support the industry.  No, the working group should do the work to address the objections that have been raised.   If you find yourself explaining some concept that’s mentioned in the document using text that is not in the document and not in another document referenced by the document, the fix is not to just publish anyway, because it supports the industry.   The fix is to update the document.   A dozen or so +1s should not be taken seriously if the work has not been done and nobody wants to do it.

Based on a curious interpretation of the text, they claim that each waypoint (intermmediate router that received the packet because its address was set as de Destination Address) can insert/remove EHs, and they claim that that's not a violation of RFC8200.
