Abstract

   This document provides for the association of tags with YANG modules.
   The expectation is for such tags to be used to help classify and
   organize modules.  A method for defining, reading and writing a
   modules tags is provided.  Tags may be standardized and assigned
   during module definition; assigned by implementations; or dynamically
   defined and set by users.  This document provides guidance to future
   model writers and, as such, this document updates
   [I-D.ietf-netmod-rfc6087bis].

1.  Introduction

   The use of tags for classification and organization is fairly
   ubiquitous not only within IETF protocols, but in the internet itself
   (e.g., #hashtags).  Tags can be usefully standardized, but they can
   also serve as a non-standardized mechanism available for users to
   define themselves.  Our solution provides for both cases allowing for
   the most flexibility.  In particular, tags may be standardized as
   well as assigned during module definition; assigned by
   implementations; or dynamically defined and set by users.
