b'Hi Reshad,\nI think this is very good idea. Then in section 4.13.3 Transmitting BFD\nPackets of BFD for Multipoint Networks should be edited. Perhaps the\nfollowing be acceptable:\nOLD TEXT\n\n   A system MUST NOT transmit any BFD Control packets if bfd.SilentTail\n   is 1.\n\nNEW TEXT\n\n   A system MUST NOT transmit any BFD Control packets if bfd.SessionType is\n\n   MultipointTail.\n\nWill look into related changes in active tails if others agree with\nthe proposal in general.\n\n\nRegards,\n\nGreg\n\n\n\nOn Tue, Jan 16, 2018 at 10:53 AM, Reshad Rahman (rrahman) <\n> wrote:\n\n> Regarding bfd.SilentTail, I am wondering if instead it should be removed\n> from MP draft  (always 1 in there) and kept as new state variable in\n> active-tail?\n>\n>\n>\n> Regards,\n>\n> Reshad.\n>\n>\n>\n> *From: *"Reshad Rahman (rrahman)" <>\n> *Date: *Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at 9:32 AM\n> *To: *"Carlos Pignataro (cpignata)" <>om>, Greg Mirsky <\n>>\n> *Cc: *Jeffrey Haas <>rg>, "" <>\n>\n> *Subject: *Re: WGLC for BFD Multipoint documents (last round)\n>\n>\n>\n> Hi Greg,\n>\n>\n>\n> The changes for bfd.SessionType (in both drafts) look good.\n>\n>\n>\n> bfd.SilentTail is fine in multipoint but in active-tail it is in the New\n> State Variables section.
