1. Introduction

1.1  Objectives of document

   This document documents the MPLS Working group consensus to continue
   to develop RFC 3209 [RFC 3209] as the signalling protocol for MPLS
   signaling for Traffic Engineering applications.

   This document also documents the MPLS working group consensus to not
   undertake any new work related to RFC 3212 [RFC 3212], e.g., there are
   no plans to progress RFC 3212 beyond proposed standard.  No other
   actions are taken relative the document status of RFC 3212 [RFC 3212]
   or RFCs that specify extensions to RFC 3212.

   Section 6 summarizes the consensus of the MPLS working group on this
   issue.  This consensus has been accepted by the IESG.  All other
   sections are documentation of the consensus process.

1.2 Nomenclature

   This document uses the term "CR-LDP related working group drafts" to
   refer to a group of Internet Drafts that specify changes or
   extensions to [RFC 3212] and the term "CR-LDP related RFCs" to discuss
   the group of RFCs that specify the protocol and the applicability of
   [RFC 3212].
