Title : TRILL: Clarifications, Corrections, and Updates
Author(s) : Donald Eastlake

The IETF TRILL (TRansparent Interconnection of Lots of Links)
protocol provides least cost pair-wise data forwarding without
configuration in multi-hop networks with arbitrary topology, safe
forwarding even during periods of temporary loops, and support for
multipathing of both unicast and multicast traffic. TRILL
accomplishes this by using IS-IS (Intermediate System to Intermediate
System) link state routing and by encapsulating traffic using a
header that includes a hop count. Since the TRILL base protocol was
approved in March 2010, active development of TRILL has revealed a
few errata in the original RFC 6325 and some cases that could use
clarifications or updates.
RFC 6327, RFC 6439, and RFC XXXX, provide clarifications with respect
to Adjacency, Appointed Forwarders, and the TRILL ESADI protocol.
This document provide other known clarifications, corrections, and
updates to RFC 6325, RFC 6327, and RFC 6439.
