Since an unimplemented section was removed and there were also a number of
clarifications, I’d like to request a WG last call on the modified draft.
It will end on July 1st, 2017 at 12:00 AM GMT. For your convenience, here
are the relevant links.


The IETF datatracker status page for this draft is:
https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-ospf-segment-routing-extensions

There are also htmlized versions available at:
https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-ospf-segment-routing-extensions-17
