The IESG has received a request from the Inter-Domain Routing WG (idr) to
consider the following document:
- 'BGP Support for Four-octet AS Number Space'
<draft-ietf-idr-rfc4893bis-06.txt> as Proposed Standard
The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
ietf@... mailing lists by 2012-06-15. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to iesg@... instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.
The Autonomous System (AS) number is encoded as a two-octet entity in
the base BGP specification. This document describes extensions to BGP
to carry the Autonomous System numbers as four-octet entities. This
document obsoletes RFC 4893.
