Jointly with EPFL we (CoRiTeL) have implemented the interworking 
between intserv and diffserv on Linux OS. A demo was shown during
Telecom 99 in Geneva. We have a paper on it submitted to ICC2000.

I don't understand exactly which is the relationship between COPS and
the problem Panagiotis is trying to solve... anyway we are using COPS
to implement a Bandwidth Broker for "resource" admission control 
in the Diffserv domain.

We are going to issue a couple of drafts describing our proposal
hopefully in the next week. 
The status of the code is as follows: the COPS protocol (client side and 
server side) in itself is working. We are working on the interaction of
RSVP daemon and COPS client... we have defined an API to interact with
the COPS client and now modifying the ISI RSVP daemon to use this API.
