A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links of the IETF.

   The TRILL (TRansparent Interconnection of Lots of Links) protocol, by
   default, learns end station addresses from observing the data plane.
   In particular, it learns local MAC addresses and edge switch port of
   attachment from the receipt of local data frames and learns remote
   MAC addresses and edge switch of attachment from the decapsulation of
   remotely sourced TRILL Data packets.

   This document specifies a message by which an originating TRILL
   switch can explicitly request other TRILL switches to flush certain
   MAC reachability learned through the decapsulation of TRILL Data
   packets. This is a supplement to the TRILL automatic address
   forgetting and can assist in achieving more rapid convergence in case
   of topology or configuration change.
