Hi KARP working group,

With RFC 7210 now published and draft-ietf-karp-ops-model having completed
Auth48, the WG can justifiably claim to have delivered on significant parts of
the charter.

The "next big thing" for the working group has been constant for a long time:
AKM. However, as you know, there has been no movement on this despite a couple
of I-Ds on the topic. In London there was a suggestion that there might be a
"management plane" solution to AKM spanning multiple routing protocols, but when
squeezed, there were not many people offering to do work on this, and no I-Ds or
even emails have popped out in the 8 weeks since then.

The WG also has just two more drafts in hand.
 - draft-ietf-karp-isis-analysis is pretty close to cooked
 - draft-ietf-karp-bfd-analysis has expired, but is also close to cooked.

Of course, there are a number of active individual drafts in the pipe as well.

After discussion with the chairs and with Alia, and unless persuaded otherwise,
I will close the KARP working group on 29th May.

We would handle remaining work as follows:

- There will not be a meeting in Toronto.
- The KARP mailing list will remain open as a place to contact people about
KARP-related work.
- The two remaining WG drafts will be completed as "AD Sponsored" with
cross-checks to the ISIS and BFD working groups.
- Any new protocol analysis I-Ds will be taken to the appropriate
protocol-owning working groups.
     - The work mapping TCP-AO state to key tables can move to IDR
     - A home for management of KeyTables can also be found (e.g., NETMod)
- If a group of people want to work on a management solution for AKM for routing
protocols (or for any protocol) then the OPS, SEC, and RTG ADs will find a place
for the work. (Write a draft, get some support, and talk to us.)
- If a charterable body of work comes along (such as AKM within routing
protocols) then we will charter or home the work as necessary.

Please think about this and comment to the list.
