Re: Closing the GELS Mailing List
I think this thread is a representation in miniature of the issues
- All the emails in this thread have been copied to both mailing lists
- All the participants in the thread are subscribed to both mailing lists
No, it doesn't cost to have both lists active.
No, it doesn't cost to have all of the threads on CCAMP.
Please note that we should not discuss the data plane. If you don't
understand (or don't like, or don't want to use) the data plane you should
have your discussions in private or at the IEEE.
- Label allocation and swapping rules
is that not a forwarding component discussion ?
It is certainly informed by the forwarding component (i.e. the definition of
the data plane), but the rules we need to define are the rules for the
control plane. I.e. (and for example, only) if the forwarding plane defines
that the label allocated on the upstream interface must be numerically one
greater than the label allocated on the downstream interface, this rule must
be referenced in the control plane specification. This is important since it
is a constraint placed on the normal per-interface operation of GMPLS. That
makes it CCAMP work.
beside the fact that there is an assumption on what
label means and how it is represented in data plane
This is also something we would expect to describe within CCAMP although
"what is a label" would come to us from the data plane specification.
