> Summary of where we are at with dynamic flooding reduction:
> 
>  - We have a well written original work that came first and described the
> problems as well as a TLVs to allow for a centralized solution (draft-li-
> dyanmic-flooding). We do not need to standardize the centralized algorithm.
> 
>  - A small change to this work allowed for distributed algorithms and for
> outside work on distributed algorithms to continue in parallel.
> 
>  - We have another original work that started primarily as a distributed
> algorithm
>    (draft-cc-ospf-flooding-reduction)
> 
>  - Finally we also have:
>    - Cross-pollination of ideas.
>    - Failed attempts at merging.
>    - An authors list "Arms-Race".
> 
> Moving forward:
> 
> - During IETF 103 I proposed we have no conflict if we:
> 
>    1) adopt draft-li-lsr-dyanmic-flooding as the base WG document.
>    2) have authors of draft-cc-lsr-flooding-reduction work on a distributed
> algorithm as they started with.
> 
> - Acee agreed during the meeting (as chair) that this was the best way
> forward. We had some agreement form the floor as well.
> 
> - Any good ideas regarding the distribution of a centralized topology can be
> debated and added (with appropriate attribution) to the base document
> after we adopt one.
> 
> - This is what happens when we adopt a document as WG work, we work on
> it.
> 
> - The original authors of the distributed solution can continue to work on
> their distributed algorithm in a separate document which would also need
> standardization.
