Oops. I'l do so as draft-ietf. The only comment I have outstanding
is regarding the example in the Appendix. Some people found it useful,
though Pekka suggested an IOS example. I think if we keep it, it should
probably stay 'vendor neutral'.
Vendor neutral could be a problem. That is, the goal of the draft is
to describe something that's rather obvious (to some people). If we
don't have concrete examples that the readers can correspond to their
existing configurations, I fear the example isn't going to be of much
So my gut feeling is that (without knowing what kind of 'vendor
neutral' text could be cooked up),
- the current example is not good, because it's too verbose and based
on BSD which isn't sufficiently commonplace so that the readers would
gain additional understanding.
- A Cisco example (one page would be enough) would be sufficient and
widely understood (even by those who don't use Cisco)
- A generic example, using pseudocode or whatever, would likely be
counter-productive, so if we can't use a specific example, we'd be
probably better off without the example at all.
