   TRILL (Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links) supports multi-
   access LAN (Local Area Network) links where a single link can have
   multiple end stations and TRILL switches attached.  Where multiple
   TRILL switches are attached to a link, native traffic to and from end
   stations on that link is handled by a subset of those TRILL switches
   called "Appointed Forwarders" as originally specified in RFC 6325,
   with the intent that native traffic in each VLAN be handled by at
   most one TRILL switch.  This document clarifies and updates the
   Appointed Forwarder mechanism. It updates RFC 6325, updates RFC 7177,
   and obsoletes RFC 6439.
