Status of draft: Ready for publication, a few editorial nits

Concerns:  None 
WG Request/Reminder:  We’ll need to make sure these parameters update the TRILL Yang data model.

Editorial NITs:

Section 2 Page 5, before first paragraph

     The text would be clear if prior to the first paragraph beginning “lz is reported”, you add a section header with: “operations” as title.

[Mingui] Yes, good point! This has been done in the attached 05 version.

Section 3 page 6 
Step 0, #2, b 
Old:/Repeat step 1/ to 
New: /Repeat/Do step 1/ 
I think the first time through, you have not gotten to Step 1:.

[Mingui] That’s true.  I think it would also be fine if this phase (Do step 1) is deleted.

If this is not true, then this becomes a concern rather than a nit.


Section 4, page 8, paragraph 0, sub-paragraph 2). Paragraph begins

/2) when an Rbridge/
It may be nice to explain why only equal is treated.

Less than Sz, it is not in campus

Greater than Sz, some other trill Rbridge has limiting size
Only if equal to Sz, it is possible that it changes Sz.

[Mingui] Yes, It’s clearer. I have listed these three possibilities with three bullets.
Sue Hares
So, I will submit the 05 version if there is no objection to above responses.
