I've been tracking SR since it began making "waves" in Paris at a
previous MPLS/SDN/IPv6 Congress meeting a a 2013, or thereabouts. Plenty
of promise about being a decent alternative to LDPv6 (which had been on
my mind since 2008).

In the end, as you rightly point out, it's been much ado about nothing.

To this day, I am yet to hear from a single operator about all the
chanting I hear from vendors - and not just SRv6, but SR in general. 7
years and counting.

Mark.
