Eric, Lizhong, Pranjal and Eric,
You have be selected as MPLS-RT reviewers for draft-raza-mpls-
Note to authors: You have been CC'd on this email so that you can know
that this review is going on. However, please do not review your own
Reviews should comment on whether the document is coherent, is it
useful (ie, is it likely to be actually useful in operational
networks), and is the document technically sound? We are interested
in knowing whether the document is ready to be considered for WG
adoption (ie, it doesn't have to be perfect at this point, but should be
a good start).
Reviews should be sent to the document authors, WG co-chairs and
WG secretary, and CC'd to the MPLS WG email list. If necessary, comments
may be sent privately to only the WG chairs.
If you have technical comments you should try to be explicit about what
*really* need to be resolved before adopting it as a working group
document, and what can wait until the document is a working group
document and the working group has the revision control.
Are you able to review this draft by Oct 1, 2014? Please respond in a
(as MPLS WG chair)

Title : IPv6 Router Alert Option for MPLS OAM
Authors : Kamran Raza
Filename : draft-raza-mpls-oam-ipv6-rao-01.txt
Pages : 5
Date : 2014-09-17
RFC4379 defines the MPLS LSP Ping/Traceroute mechanism, in which the
Router Alert option must be set in the IP header of the MPLS Echo
Request messages, and may conditionally be set in the IP header of
the MPLS Echo Reply messages. While a generic "Router shall examine
packet" Option Value is used for the IPv4 Router Alert Option (RAO),
there is no generic Router Alert Option Value defined for IPv6 that
can be used. This document allocates a new generic IPv6 Router Alert
Option Value that can be used by MPLS OAM tools, including the MPLS
Echo Request and MPLS Echo Reply messages for MPLS IPv6.
The initial motivation to request an IPv6 Router Alert Option (RAO)
code point for MPLS OAM comes from MPLS LSP Ping/Traceroute.
However, this codepoint is applicable to all MPLS OAM and not limited
to MPLS LSP Ping/Traceroute.
