Hi all,

Over in IDR there is currently a call for adoption of draft-wkumari-idr-as0-01 -- this draft belongs in IDR  (it clarifies a minor point in BGP docs), but one of hte main reasons for the drafts existence is to support SIDR features.

So far there not been much discussion on the call for adoption, so I'm asking that SIDR folk who also follow IDR please take a minute to look at the draft and express an opinion (on the IDR list…)

The 10,000 foot view of the draft is that it specifies that routes that have AS0 as the origin (or in the path should be dropped[0)].
This is to prevent folk from hijacking space if we use AS0 as the origin for address resources that a not currently in use --  like done in I-D.ietf-sidr-iana-objects and elsewhere.

For ease of finding the draft: http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-wkumari-idr-as0-01 -- it is really short (4 pages, 3 of them mostly boilerplate) and simply a codification / clarification of existing code,  so it shouldn't take much time to review. 

The deadline for discussion is tomorrow's IDR meeting (November 15 2011, 09:00 Taipei time).

[0]: technically treated as a withdrawal.
