Ballot Text

Technical Summary

   This document defines a YANG data model for the management of network
   interfaces.  It is expected that interface type specific data models
   augment the generic interfaces data model defined in this document.
   The data model includes configuration data, state data and counters
   for the collection of statistics.

Working Group Summary

   The normal WG process was followed and the document reflect WG
   consensus with nothing special worth mentioning except for the following.

   While the working group felt that the set of documents was complete in
   April 2013, there was a sense of unease about disparities between
   operational state and configuration. Additional reviews during the last
   call made it clear that it was desirable to deal with this by separating
   operational state from configuration management and that this should have
   been done from the beginning. The working group pulled the document back
   from IESG review and worked to add this to the model.

Document Quality

  This set of documents (draft-ietf-netmod-interfaces-cfg, draft-ietf-netmod-iana-if-type,
  draft-ietf-netmod-ip-cf) received extensive review within the working group
  and ample time was spent to review and reconsider all design choices.
  The working group also reached out to the IP directorate and received
 additional review from Dave Thaler.


  David Kessens is the document shepherd (and Thomas Nadeau lately)
  Benoit Claise is the responsible Area Director.
