This document outlines an approach to mitigate the negative impact on
networks resulting from maintenance activities.  It includes guidance
for both IP networks and Internet Exchange Points (IXPs).  The
approach is to ensure BGP-4 sessions that will be affected by
maintenance are forcefully torn down before the actual maintenance
activities commence.
