The following errata report has been rejected for RFC4659,
"BGP-MPLS IP Virtual Private Network (VPN) Extension for IPv6 VPN".

You may review the report below and at:

Status: Rejected
Type: Technical

Reported by: Wesley George <wesley.george@twcable.com>
Date Reported: 2014-08-18
Rejected by: Adrian Farrel (IESG)

Section: GLOBAL

Original Text
No "updates" metadata reference to update RFC4364

Corrected Text
This document updates RFC4364 (and associated metadata links)

RFC4659 provides an extension to the standard defined in RFC4364 to add IPv6 support to a standard that was originally IPv4-only. This metadata link will make it clearer for implementers that both standards are necessary for a full implementation.
Considering the definition of "updates", the normal terms of an errata report, and the discussion on the Bess mailing list I am rejecting this. 

This should not be construed as meaning that IPv6 support is not critically important: BGP/MPLS VPNs should, of course, be fully functional in IPv6 networks.
