          Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL):                 Clarifications, Corrections, and Updates


   Since the publication of the TRILL (Transparent Interconnection of    Lots of Links) base protocol in 2011, active development and    deployment of TRILL have revealed errata in RFC 6325 and areas that    could use clarifications or updates.  RFC 7177, RFC 7357, and an    intended replacement of RFC 6439 provide clarifications and updates    with respect to adjacency, the TRILL ESADI (End Station Address    Distribution Information) protocol, and Appointed Forwarders,    respectively.  This document provides other known clarifications,    corrections, and updates.  It obsoletes RFC 7180 (the previous "TRILL    clarifications, corrections, and updates" RFC), and it updates RFCs    6325, 7177, and 7179.
