The RADEXT WG has a charter deliverable for extensions to the RADIUS attribute
space. The apparent consensus in the WG is to solve a very simple set of
problems, including the pending exhaustion of the standard RADIUS attribute
space, a consistent mechanism for application layer fragmentation and reassembly
for Diameter interoperability, and a consistent mechanism for grouping of
attributes for data structuring, also for Diameter interoperability.
The structure of the extended attribute format currently under consideration
may require changes in various RADIUS extensions drafts in RADEXT and
other working groups. This assumes that at least some of these documents
will ultimately use the RADIUS extended attribute allocations. Given the
potential widespread impact of attribute extension, the RADEXT WG Chairs
are requesting that the RADEXT WG and all other affected WGs please review
the following document: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-lior-radius-attribute-type-extension-02.txt
This is the third (and last) review request relating to this document.
On December 5, 2006 a call for review of the RADIUS extended attribute document was
issued to the RADEXT WG: http://ops.ietf.org/lists/radiusext/2006/msg01002.html
Unfortunately, no review comments were received relating to this document. Since the call
for review occurred during the holiday the call for review as reissued on March 20, 2007:http://ops.ietf.org/lists/radiusext/2007/msg00161.html
This request did not garner much response either, so the call for review is being
reissued one last time, in order to gauge whether there is sufficient interest in this work item.
Please send comments to the RADEXT WG mailing list (radiusext <at> ops.ietf.org
indicating whether you believe the document should be adopted as a RADEXT WG
work item. You need not have any comments on the document in order to respond
affirmatively; however, if you do not believe the document should be adopted, it would
be helpful to explain why not. If there are specific issues relating to the document,
these should be submitted using the RADEXT Issue Tracker template, which can be found at:http://www.drizzle.com/~aboba/RADEXT/
This Request for Review will last until July 22, 2007.
