Hi Valery,

We didn't consider the use of new terms because we thought this may be interpreted as if we are defining new DOTS roles (which we don't).

The text uses "in the call home scenario" to make that distinction in some places, but I understand this may not be sufficient.

I'm OK to go with "Call Home DOTS *". I updated the terminology section with the following:

   DOTS agents involved in the DOTS Call Home adhere to the DOTS roles

   as defined in [RFC8612].  For clarity, this document uses "Call Home

   DOTS client" (or "Call Home DOTS server") to refer to a DOTS client

   (or DOTS server) deployed in a Call Home scenario.

and changed the text when it makes sense. The full diff is available at:

candidate -05:

Please let us know if this is better.

Thank you.

Hi Med,

thank you for adding this section, it really helps.
However, I was asking for more - did you consider
changing the terminology in such a way, that
Call Home use case is not mixed with basic DOTS use case?

For example, calling entities not just DOTS Client and DOTS
Server, but say Call Home DOTS Client and Call Home DOTS Server?
(actually I don't like these ad hoc names, probably you can invent better term).

There was a comment raised during the meeting asking to further clarify the role of the various DOTS agent in the call home. We added an new section to address this comment:
