Purpose: In response

Referenced liaison: LS on work on MPLS-TP protection (https://datatracker.ietf.org/liaison/1462/)

Body: The MPLS and PALS Working Groups are pleased to hear about the continued progress on the MPLS Transport Profile and continued alignment with IETF RFCs.

We confirm that "MPLS-TP Shared-Ring protection (MSRP) mechanism for ring topology” 
is progressing in the MPLS WG, and invite comments on this draft to the MPLS WG mailing list (mpls@ietf.org). In addition, we are also progressing a draft on "Resilient MPLS Rings" 

The PALS WG currently has two drafts in progress that are relevant to MPLS-TP pseudowire linear protection:


These drafts provide a fast protection mechanism for MPLS-TP PWs to protect dual-homed CEs against failures of their attachment circuits or PE routers. The drafts are ongoing work and were very recently updated. 
We hope to complete work on these drafts by the upcoming IETF meeting in Berlin on July 17-22, 2016, and would very much appreciate SG15’s review and comments to the pals@ietf.org email list.

We are also pleased to hear about the second amendment to Recommendation ITU-T G.8131/Y.1382, "Linear protection switching for MPLS transport profile."

In addition to maintaining communication with liaisons, please engage on the MPLS WG mailing list (mpls@ietf.org) and PALS WG mailing list
(pals@ietf.org) which provide a more timely view of the state of the work.
