Hi Patrice - we are working fervently on a common IETF routing types model. We have both route-target and router-distinguisher types defined there. The work is being done in the Routing WG. Our intension is to accelerate standardization so it doesn't hold up standardization of the importing modules. Please comment as to whether you think this meets BESS requirements.

P.S. We plan an update next week but the RD and RT definitions have not changed.

Subject: [bess] BGP common parameter Yang module


As part of EVPN, L2VPn and L3VPN Yang model, there is a "module" common to all 3 Yang models.

      |     +--rw bgp-parameters
      |     |  +--rw common
      |     |     +--rw rd-rt* [route-distinguisher]
      |     |        +--rw route-distinguisher    string
      |     |        +--rw vpn-target* [rt-value]
      |     |           +--rw rt-value    string
      |     |           +--rw rt-type     bgp-rt-type

It will be interesting to create a common BGP parameter Yang module as shown above. I think it just makes sense.
However, there is a minor challenge; that module require a home (a draft).
I'm looking for feedback about the best place/draft for such a module.

Thanks for your help.
