Subject: WG Review: NETCONF Data Modeling Language (netmod)

The NETCONF Data Modeling Language (netmod) WG in the Operations and
Management Area of the IETF is undergoing rechartering. The IESG has not
made any determination yet. The following draft charter was submitted,
and is provided for informational purposes only. Please send your
comments to the IESG mailing list (iesg@ietf.org) by 2017-04-17.

Charter: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/charter-ietf-netmod/

The Network Modeling (NETMOD) working group is responsible for the YANG
data modeling language, which can be used to specify network management
data models that are transported over such protocols as NETCONF and
RESTCONF, and guidelines for developing YANG models. The NETMOD working
group addresses general topics related to the use of the YANG language
and YANG models, for example, the mapping of YANG modeled data into
various encodings. Finally, the NETMOD working group also defines core
YANG models used as basic YANG building blocks, and YANG models that do
not otherwise fall under the charter of any other IETF working group.
  
The NETMOD WG is responsible for:

   a) Maintaining the data modeling language YANG. This effort entails
      periodically updating the specification to address new
requirements
      as they arise.

   b) Maintaining the guidelines for developing YANG models. This effort
      is primarily driven by updates made to the YANG specification.

   c) Maintaining a conceptual framework in which YANG models are used.
      This effort entails describing the generic context that in YANG
      exists and how certain YANG statements interact in that context.
      An example of this is YANG's relationship with datastores.

   d) Maintaining encodings for YANG modeled data. This effort entails
      updating encodings already defined by the NETMOD working group (XML
and
      JSON) to accommodate changes to the YANG specification, and
defining
      new YANG encodings that are needed, and yet do not fall under the 
      charter of any other active IETF working group.

   e) Maintaining YANG models used as basic YANG building blocks. This
      effort entails updating existing YANG models (ietf-yang-types and
      ietf-inet-types) as needed, as well as defining additional core
YANG
      data models when necessary.

   f) Defining and maintaining YANG models that do not fall under the
      charter of any other active IETF working group.

   The NETMOD working group consults with the NETCONF working group to
   ensure that new requirements are understood and can be met by the
   protocols (e.g., NETCONF and RESTCONF) developed within that working
   group.

   The NETMOD working group does not serve as a review team for YANG
   modules developed by other working groups. Instead, the YANG doctors,
   [1] as organized by the OPS area director responsible for network
   management, will act as advisors for other working groups and provide
   YANG reviews for the OPS area directors.
