Hi Nik, hi Ido,

By the way speaking about the IGMP/MLD querier mechanism. Not sure if
you are subscribed to the pim at ietf.org or mcast-wifi at ietf.org mailing lists.

There was a call for volunteers to progress IGMP/MLD to standards
track not that long ago:

"[pim] Volunteers needed for work on progressing IGMP/MLD on the standards track"

I had voiced some concerns regarding the IGMPv2/MLDv1 report
suppression and the querier mechanism and their unfavourable
implications, as well as some issues (or ambiguities at least) with RFC4541:


It seems that some bigger vendors had gathered for a phone call:


But I haven't heard anything back from that meeting on those

Just wanted to forward this, in case you guys might maybe be
interested to participate there in some way. :-)

Cheers, Linus
