In its review of draft-ietf-trill-esadi-07, members of the IESG
suggested a number of areas for additions. In my opinion, none of
these make any significant technical change to the draft, but together
they are extensive enough that I'd like to give the WG an opportunity
to comment on the changes. If you have comments on these changes,
please post them to this list or send them to Jon Hudson and myself
within a week.

Changes (ignoring typo corrections and reference updates for recently
published RFCs) are as follows:

(1) Addition of a Privacy Considerations section as a subsection of
the existing Security Considerations. See attachment 1.

(2) Additional information about changes from [RFC6325] ESADI and what
would happen in a TRILL campus with a mix of RBridges implementing
[RFC6325] ESADI and those implementing ESADI according to this draft.
See attachment 2, an updated and extended version of Appendix A. If
there are responses to the query posted by Jon Hudson
indicating that there are customer deployments of [RFC6325] ESADI,
then additional changes may be required.

(3) Change the first sentence of the Security Considerations section
to the following two sentences and add a reference to [RFC5310] to
Section 6.3:

   "ESADI PDUs can be authenticated through the inclusion of the
   Authentication TLV [RFC5310]. Defaults for such authentication are
   described in Section 6.3."
