Hi Himanshu,
the IPR Disclosures should be published in a day or two. In the meantime, what in particular you suggest the WG should look into - importance of the problem, terms of the Disclosures or claims of the invention?

IMHO, WG should wait till IPR are disclosed and reviewed before making progress on these drafts.

Hi Jeff,
we have not expected this question that early :)
Yes, there's IPR associated with these drafts that would be properly disclosed after the meeting.

Working Group,

These documents reasonably extend the existing BFD on LAG mechanism and would be reasonably in charter for BFD to pick up.

Greg, given that adoption seems a reasonable course, could you and the other co-authors state whether there's any known IPR on these documents?

Dear All,
two new drafts, related to RFC 7130, were published before the meeting:
*         BFD on MC-LAG interfaces in IP network<>
*         BFD on MC-LAG interfaces in IP/MPLS network<>

Greatly appreciate your reviews, comments, questions and suggestions.
