Hi Jeff, et. al,
I've missed the part of active-tails in the WGLC. My apologies. Though it
may be too late, I'll send my notes by the end of the week.
Since the targeted track to the active-tails draft may be changed from
Standard to Experimental perhaps we should inform the TRILL WG as TRILL
Support of Point to Multipoint BFD
<https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-trill-p2mp-bfd-05> has active-tails
as its normative reference and very much relies on its functionality to
keep the root informed of failure in p2mp tree.
