A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
This draft is a work item of the Routing Area Working Group Working Group of 
the IETF.

        Title           : Basic Specification for IP Fast-Reroute: Loop-free

This document describes the use of loop-free alternates to provide
   local protection for unicast traffic in pure IP and MPLS/LDP networks
   in the event of a single failure, whether link, node or shared risk
   link group (SRLG).  The goal of this technology is to reduce the
   packet loss that happens while routers converge after a topology
   change due to a failure.  Rapid failure repair is achieved through
   use of precalculated backup next-hops that are loop-free and safe to
   use until the distributed network convergence process completes.
   This simple approach does not require any support from other routers.
   The extent to which this goal can be met by this specification is
   dependent on the topology of the network.
