Technical Summary

   The Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) defined in this document
   provides mechanisms to install, manipulate, and delete the
   configuration of network devices.  It uses an Extensible Markup
   Language (XML)-based data encoding for the configuration data as well
   as the protocol messages.  The NETCONF protocol operations are
   realized as Remote Procedure Calls (RPC).

   This revision of the document clarifies some text and
   fixes some minor bugs (including reported rfc4741 errata)
   as found from implementatition experience of rfc4741.
