RE: I-D ACTION:draft-ietf-bridge-ext-v2-01.txt (summ ary)

RowStatus has been added to dot1vProtocolGroupTable and dot1vProtocolPortTable as proposed by Ilan Yerushalmi.

And my apology goes to Andrew Smith and his company.  I just notice that I forgot to update his affiliation on the title page.  I will have it changed next time.

Internet-Drafts are also available by anonymous FTP. Login with the username "anonymous" and a password of your e-mail address. After logging in, type "cd internet-drafts" and then

        "get draft-ietf-bridge-ext-v2-01.txt".

A list of Internet-Drafts directories can be found in

Internet-Drafts can also be obtained by e-mail.

Send a message to:
        mailserv <at>
In the body type:
        "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-bridge-ext-v2-01.txt".
NOTE:   The mail server at can return the document in
        MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
        feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
        command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
        a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
        exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
        "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
        up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
        how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the Internet-Draft.
