At the last TRILL WG meeting in Yokohama, towards the end of the
second session, there was a discussion of the best mechanism to
implement a remote RBridge MAC address flush mechanism.
draft-hao-trill-address-flush proposes to use RBridge Channel messages
[RFC7178] but some people suggest the use of ESADI messages [RFC7357].
There was no resolution of this at the meeting so the Chair indicated
that it should be taken to the mailing list. This message is to start
the discussion. I'll post separately with my personal opinion.

Thanks,
Donald
