    Hi folks,

    Please note this important piece of SLPv2 - standard method for
    avoiding naming collisions in private namespaces - this will now be
    incorporated into the revised SLPv2 Protocol (updates to RFC 2608
    now in progress) along with other extensions and clarifications.

    Cheers,

    Location Protocol, Version 2 to Proposed Standard (Fwd)

    Folks,

    Another SLP document to standards track. This one updates RFC2608
    by changing the recommendation for how to do nonstandard attributes
    and naming authorities so that there are no name collisions in the
    SLP user community.

    Based on past experience, I believe it will take something like
    2 months before an RFC will appear.

    Erik

    Subject: Protocol Action: Vendor Extensions for Service Location Protocol,
    Version 2 to Proposed Standard

    The IESG has approved the Internet-Draft 'Vendor Extensions for Service
    Location Protocol, Version 2' <draft-guttman-svrloc-vendor-ext-07.txt>
    as a Proposed Standard.

    This has been reviewed in the IETF but is not the product of an IETF
    Working Group. The IESG contact persons Thomas Narten and Erik
    Nordmark.

    Technical Summary
     
       The Service Location Protocol, Version 2 [RFC 2608] allows for
       vendor extensibility. This document clarifies how to make use of
       such vendor extensions in order to minimize the chances of name
       space collisions. This document also defines a Vendor Opaque
       Extension, which makes it possible for a vendor to extend SLP
       independently, once the vendor has registered itself with IANA and
       obtained an Enterprise Number.

    Working Group Summary

     There were no issues raised during the Last Call period.

    Protocol Quality

     This document has been reviewed for the IESG by Thomas Narten.

    Note to RFC Editor:
