Is 802.1s passed as standard or not?

Hello newsgroup participants,

Is 802.1s finally accepted standard or not?
It had been due 2001 but it is not listed
amond available standards at the page
http://standards.ieee.org/getieee802/802.1.html
as well as 802.1p, which is also not presented there.
So what is going on? Are they still non-standards,
are they standards but not free of charge or
something else?

Yours sincrely
Ariel Burbaickij

802.1s was approved in 2002 and incorporated into 802.1Q (i.e., it is
not a separate standard, but a supplement to Q).

Similarly, 802.1p was approved long ago and incorporated into 802.1D.

If you have the latest editions of 802.1D/Q, you automatically have .1p
and .1s. By the way, you can always tell when a document is "standalone"
vs "supplement"; standalone documents get uppercase designations
(.1D/.1Q), while supplements get lowercase ones (.1p/.1s).

I wondered about that before.  I thought it was that they had run out of
upper case, and were starting on lower case letters.  (Case sensitive
standards, just like C and Java.)

When they run out of letters, they switch to using double lettering.
For e.g., after 802.3z, the next project was called 802.3aa.

1. interoperate between PVST+ or MST (802.1s) and CST (802.1d) region?

Hi,

I am confused on interoperate between PVST+ and CST (802.1d) region or
MST (802.1s) and CST (802.1d) region. Suppose I have access switch A
with 2 VLANs redundantly connected to 2 distribution/core switches, B
and C, in PVST+ or MST region. And I configure spanning tree to half of
VLANs forward on each uplink, such as VLAN 100 through switch B and
VLAN 200 through switch C. So, when I connect this region to CST
region, which's spanning tree topology to operate within the CST
region?

Please advice me.

Thanks for advance,
Nitass
