Abstract

   This document documents the consensus reached by the Multiprotocol
   Label Switching (MPLS) Working Group within the IETF to focus its
   efforts on "Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP)-TE: Extensions to
   RSVP for Label-Switched Paths (LSP) Tunnels" (RFC 3209) as the MPLS
   signalling protocol for traffic engineering applications and to
   undertake no new efforts relating to "Constraint-Based LSP Setup
   using Label Distribution Protocol (LDP)" (RFC 3212).  The
   recommendations of section 6 have been accepted by the IESG.
