Hello working group,

At the end of July, IPR has been disclosed on both 
draft-bonica-l3vpn-orf-covering-prefixes and 
draft-ietf-l3vpn-orf-covering-prefixes, related to a patent by one of 
the co-authors, Lucy Yong ; we consider this disclosure far from 
satisfying considering the rules of BCP79 ("as soon as reasonably 
possible after the Contribution is published" [1]), and in particular 
because the information was not provided when an IPR disclosure reminder 
question was asked by chairs to authors, during the call for adoption in 

The WG Chairs have thus decided to take a step back and initiate a new 
poll for adoption on draft-bonica-l3vpn-orf-covering-prefixes-03 [2].

Knowing about this IPR [3], please express your opinion on whether this 
document should be adopted or not by the Working Group. Please motivate 
your opinion.

Progressing this document as an L3VPN WG item is thus subject to renewed 
WG consensus.

Please send your comments, to the list or to the chairs, before 
**October the 21th**.

Thank you,

Thomas & Martin,
l3vpn chairs
