Technical Summary The NETCONF protocol defines the lock and unlock RPCs, used to lock entire configuration datastores. In some situations, a way to lock only parts of a configuration datastore is required. This document defines a capability-based extension to the NETCONF protocol for locking portions of a configuration datastore. Working Group Summary The working group went over several versions of the document. The comments and reviews helped improve the document a lot and brought us to consensus on the 7th revision of the docuemnt. Document Quality There are preliminary implementations of this protocol and updates to comply with this spec are in plan. Others are planning to implement this spec too.
