Technical Summary

    This document describes an architecture for service and network
    management automation that takes advantage of YANG modeling
    technologies.  This architecture is drawn from a network operator
    perspective irrespective of the origin of a data model; it can thus
    accommodate modules that are developed outside the IETF.

Working Group Summary

    This document ran eight versions before adoption into the working
    group. The adoption poll included responses from fifteen people and
    general support was indicated.

    WG last call attracted fewer commenters, but there were several detailed
    reviews which were addressed.

    There were no points of contention.

Document Quality

    This document is not intended for implementation, but as a guideline for
    building and deploying management systems. The involvement of four
    network operators in the authorship indicates that the document has been
    viewed carefully by those involved in deploying network management
