Hi Benjamin/Sue,

NB> The reason string is indeed not relevant for the success case. The success 
case is "Installed is TRUE AND Active is TRUE". For everything else a reason 
will help. It will help the client to know why something was installed but is 
not active.

    As I recall (and my memory may be spotty), the reason was available for 
both "yes" and "no" in case "yes" it is active, and "no" it is not installed 
(example - 20 ECMP routes and only 10 get installed).   Nitin may have more 
details on this RFC. 
    Cheerily, Susan Hares

    Subject: Benjamin Kaduk's No Objection on 
draft-ietf-i2rs-rib-info-model-15: (with COMMENT)
    Benjamin Kaduk has entered the following ballot position for
    draft-ietf-i2rs-rib-info-model-15: No Objection
    When responding, please keep the subject line intact and reply to all email 
addresses included in the To and CC lines. (Feel free to cut this introductory 
paragraph, however.)
    Please refer to https://www.ietf.org/iesg/statement/discuss-criteria.html
    for more information about IESG DISCUSS and COMMENT positions.
    The document, along with other ballot positions, can be found here:
    I share Warren's question (and, IIRC, asked a similar one about the 
associated data-model document).
    Just one other minor question: in Section 4
       Route programming in the RIB MUST result in a return code that
       contains the following attributes:
       o  Installed - Yes/No (Indicates whether the route got installed in
          the FIB)
       o  Active - Yes/No (Indicates whether a route is fully resolved and
          is a candidate for selection)
       o  Reason - e.g., Not authorized
    Is the Reason only relevant when one of the other two is "No"?
