Subject: [Idr] Protocol Action: 'Recommendation for Not Using AS_SETand
AS_CONFED_SET in BGP' to BCP(draft-ietf-idr-deprecate-as-sets-06.txt)

> The IESG has approved the following document:
> - 'Recommendation for Not Using AS_SET and AS_CONFED_SET in BGP'
>   (draft-ietf-idr-deprecate-as-sets-06.txt) as a BCP
> This document is the product of the Inter-Domain Routing Working Group.
> The IESG contact persons are Stewart Bryant and Adrian Farrel.
> A URL of this Internet Draft is:
> http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-idr-deprecate-as-sets/
> Technical Summary
> This document provides advice to operators. It deprecates
> the use of the AS_SET and AS_CONFED_SET types of
> the AS_PATH in BGPv4. This is done to simplify the
> design and implementation of the BGP protocol and to make
> the semantics of the originator of a route more clear.
> Working Group Summary
> This document was adopted as a WG item on
> Oct 25th, 2010. There was an initial WGLC
> that concluded on April 13th, 2010. Comments
> from the initial WGLC were integrated and a
> second WGLC held, which concluded on May17, 2011.
> Document Quality
> This note provides advice to operators proposing that
> they cease using a current BGP protocol feature.
> Personnel
> John Scudder (jgs@juniper.net) is the document shepherd.
> Stewart Bryant (stbryant@cisco.com) is the responsible AD.
> RFC Editor Note
> There is no RFC2119 language used in the draft.
> Please remove section 2 - the RFC2119 section and the
> RFC2119 reference.
