I support this adoption.

This draft gives clarification on some of the areas like “Distribution Tree
and RPF Check” by providing “Alternative RPF” on multi-access links where a
packet can be duplicated,  use of E-L1FS, Extended Hop Count from 64 to
512, handling of Errata reported in earlier versions, TRILL header update.
This draft provides enhancements to the TRILL Base protocol which intern
helps in providing a better TRILL solution.

   Since publication of the TRILL (Transparent Interconnection of Lots

   of Links) base protocol in 2011, active development of TRILL has

   revealed errata in RFC 6325 and areas that could use clarifications

   or updates. RFCs 7177, 7357, and [rfc6439bis] provide clarifications

   and updates with respect to Adjacency, the TRILL ESADI (End Station

   Address Distribution Information) protocol, and Appointed Forwarders

   respectively.  This document provides other known clarifications,

   corrections, and updates. It obsoletes RFC 7180 (the previous TRILL

   clarifications, corrections), updates RFC 7177, updates RFC 7179, and

   updates RFC 6325
