The IESG has approved the following document:
- 'Port Control Protocol (PCP) Anycast Addresses'
  (draft-ietf-pcp-anycast-08.txt) as Proposed Standard

This document is the product of the Port Control Protocol Working Group.

The IESG contact persons are Brian Haberman and Terry Manderson.

Technical Summary:

    The Port Control Protocol (PCP) Anycast Addresses enable PCP clients
    to transmit signaling messages to their closest PCP-aware on-path
    NAT, Firewall, or other middlebox, without having to learn the IP
    address of that middlebox via some external channel.  This document
    establishes one well-known IPv4 address and one well-known IPv6
    address to be used as PCP Anycast Addresses.

Working Group Summary:

    The WG has consensus on this document, nothing particularly rough.

Document Quality:

    Implementation status is unknown, although its existence was motivated
    by experience from Apple's implementation.
