Liaisons referred by this one Response to Liaison Statement on IP Service Attributes 2016-02-26
We would like to thank you for your liaison of 14th April 2016. As you
requested, we have encouraged MEF members to submit any feedback they have on
the L3SM draft directly to the L3SM working group.

We would like to clarify that the scope of the current MEF project is to
develop Service Attribute definitions; it is not in the scope of the current
project to create a Yang module. However, the IP Service Attributes project has
been studying the L3SM draft to ensure that our attribute definitions are
aligned with it as much as possible. It is hoped that this will enable a future
MEF project that develops a Yang model to define it as an extension of the L3SM
model, as you suggest.

The next MEF meetings are:
   August 1-4, 2016 – Boston, USA
   October 24-27, 2016 - Ottawa, Canada
