          IETF 104 pim
          pim-dr-improvement draft
          Sandy said she sent email to Stig to check the latest changes. Will
          submit a new version.
          yang igmp mld snooping draft
          Updating model based on comments received on the igmp mld model draft.
          Will do WGLC on the list.
          yang igmp mld proxy draft
          Addressed all comments so far.
          Ian Duncan thinks work should be done.
          \Stig Venaas
          pim null register packing draft
          Update includes the new pim message type extension format for the packed
          register message types
          and anycast rp considerations.
          Dino: i hope the format is exactly like a join/prune message so same
          code can be used. And snoopers can be used.
          Stig: it's not.
          Dino: protocols for ip multicast (pim). why hasn't it been combined with
          Mike: decided there was plenty of work in each wg for now.
          \Stig Venaas
          reserved bits draft
          I believe its ready for wglc.
          Dino: enough types for vendor specific?
          Stig: would be hesitant because they would reduce the subtypes. Best to
          just get this draft done.
          \Stig Venaas
          pim port pfm draft
          Not asking for adoption but whether this is useful.
          Dino: not related to this draft, a bit off topic. are there any
          requirements to send messages encrypted? Maybe use QUIC.
          Stig: do have pim port but not sure if anyone has implemented.
          Toerless: we had that discussion decade back with snooping and
          security. one compromise to only have authentication and zero
          encryption so you can see what payload is there. haven't seen it done.
          zero encryption: nobody needs it according to quic. not sure how
          difficult it would be to use tls and quick. would love to see it.
          Dino: do you think the preformance properties of quic merit adding it
          in? maybe lack of tcp
          implementaions maybe not.
          Toerless: I like port. if we adopt anything new that shouldn't be a
          reason to not use port. so little support for port right now.
          Stig: also have pim registers support for port. need to gauge if port
          is the right solution.
          Toerless: we managed to avoid if you do this across the internet how
          about the congestion control. answer is port. have a hard time
          elevating it to the recommended solution.
          Stig: maybe see if there are better improvements for pim.
          Mankamana BDR draft
          Toerless raising whether drafts should have been merged with Sandy's
          similar draft.
          Jeffrey also asked if that had been discussed.
          Stig suggested that drafts reference one another and state what the
          difference is.
          Alvaro: clearly state why there are two different drafts for the same
          problem and why
          they aren't combined
          Mike assert packing
          Stig thinks its a good idea and asking about packing type.... what to
          if you support both.
          Toerless explaining how people had to deploy in certain ways to avoid
          asserts. People want LAN for various reasons and asserts need to be
          handled better. Important to solve this.
          Jeffrey: Wondering if other ways of avoiding asserts. Can one choose
          upstream based on what others requested.
          Toerless says he suggested strong RPF, but people did not like it.
          Jeffrey: When packing, how long do you wait before you send out
          Mankamana: Wanted to know how to implement it....
          Dino: Says last points critically important. Aggregate means collect
          subsequent, cannot wait....
          Dino: Why asserts happen so often for SM? Asking if DM was a concern.
          Lenny: Why asserts put in there, explaining why, exchanges....
          Toerless: Document about assert problems in exchanges etc in mboned.
          This is for typical L2 transit LANs.
          Ice: Supporting Toerless, says better get rid of them than making it
          Dino: Asking if transit LANs could be P2P or not...
          Toerless: Explaining how to avoid duplicates, strong RPF check would be
          Dino: Strong RPF check would be a tough change.
          Ice: I wasn't suggesting to stop using asserts. Explaining strong RPF.
          Dino: Just remove asserts and avoid duplicates for a short amount of
          Toerless: Duplicates causing a lot of problems, strong RPF check would
          Dino: Strong RPF super costly for vendors.
          Ice: Allowing duplicates can be difficult.
          Dino: Unicast RPF change affects a lot of flows, prunes would take
          care a lot at the same time.
          Lenny: Choices are replace asserts, alternative, don't bother doing
          asserts. 3rd choice, optimize asserts.
          Skipping assert maybe makes sense if doing a new implementation
          Hooman TreeSID
          SR policy for P2MP
          Can one compute reverse paths as well? Hooman, yes
          Dino: Prefer head-end replication to spray. Spray sounds scary, sounds
          like broadcast.
          Jeffrey: There is discussion on the term, agree it could be renamed.
          Head-end replication is established in a different context. Says some
          confusion about
          replication at the root.
          Toerless IGMP/MLD evolution
          Toerless says it might make sense to also ask for input on application
          SSM support.
          Stig: One challenge is how to reach the right audience.
          Tim Winters said he could help.
