I do not support WG adoption of this CRH draft.

Despite the claims of the authors, for me this draft simply proposes another method to compress an SR Policy SID list in IPv6 networks using an alternative dataplane implementation.
As many people have already indicated in this thread, several other SID list compression proposals are being discussed in Spring WG. This CRH draft cannot be adopted in 6man WG before being discussed in Spring WG.

    This message starts a two-week 6MAN call on adopting:

     Title:          The IPv6 Compact Routing Header (CRH)

     Authors:        R. Bonica, Y. Kamite, T. Niwa, A. Alston, L. Jalil

     File Name:      draft-bonica-6man-comp-rtg-hdr-21

     Document date:  2020-05-14

    as a working group item. Substantive comments regarding adopting this document should be directed to the mailing list.  Editorial suggestions can be sent to the authors.

    Please note that this is an adoption call, it is not a w.g. last call for advancement, adoption means that it will become a w.g. draft.  As the working group document, the w.g. will decide how the document should change going forward.

    This adoption call will end on 29 May 2020.

    The chairs note there has been a lot of discussions on the list about this draft.   After discussing with our area directors, we think it is appropriate to start a working group adoption call.  The authors have been active in resolving issues raised on the list.

    Could those who are willing to work on this document, either as contributors, authors or reviewers please notify the list.   That gives us an indication of the energy level in the working group

    to work on this.
