Hi all,

I wrote up the below-referenced draft to document some measurement aspects of L-Root.

No doubt there are typos, errors, ambiguity and related horrors in the text which could be improved. If you have a few spare minutes and don't mind giving me a review, I'd appreciate it.

(apologies if you get some form of this e-mail in multiple places due to overlapping list subscriptions)

> Abstract:
>   Anycast is a deployment technique commonly employed for
>   authoritative-only servers in the Domain Name System (DNS).  L-Root,
>   one of the thirteen root servers, is deployed in this fashion.
>   Various techniques have been used to map deployed anycast
>   infrastructure externally, i.e. without reference to inside knowledge
>   about where and how such infrastructure has been deployed.
>   Motivations for performing such measurement exercises include
>   operational troubleshooting and infrastructure risk assessment.  In
>   the specific case of L-Root, the ability to measure and map anycast
>   infrastructure using the techniques mentioned in this document is
>   provided for reasons of operational transparency.
>   This document describes all facilities deployed at L-Root to
>   facilitate mapping of its infrastructure and serves as documentation
>   for L-Root as a measurable service.
