As you recall, the MEF sent the IETF a communication on the last day of October

Here is a draft response that Qin and I propose to send as WG chairs. Any


> Subject: Response to your liaison dated 31st October 2016
> From: L2SM Chairs
> To: MEF
> Cc: Raghu Ranganathan <rraghu@ciena.com>
>     Benoit Claise <bclaise@cisco.com>
>     Joel Jaeggli <joelja@bogus.com>
>     L2SM Working Group <l2sm@ietf.org>
>     Scott Mansfield <scott.mansfield@ericsson.com>
>     Mahesh Jethanandani <mahesh@cisco.com>
> Thank you for your liaison message of 31st October this year
> addressed to the IESG and OPS Area Directors.
> Since your liaison, the Layer 2 VPN Service Model (L2SM) working
> group has been formed by the IESG. You can see the working group's
> charter at https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/l2sm/charter/.
> The working group met for the first time at IETF-97 in Seoul and had
> a lively discussion about its work including the issues of terminology,
> functional boundaries, and potential overlap with or use of MEF work.
> You can see the meeting materials and draft minutes at
> https://datatracker.ietf.org/meeting/97/materials/ by searching for
> "L2SM".  Both Mahesh Jethanandani and Scott Mansfield were in the room
> during the meeting and can probably give you their views on what
> happened.
> Your liaison message is most helpful in pointing out existing and
> ongoing MEF work related to the task of the L2SM working group, and the
> fact of you making available log-in details for your work-in-progress
> is very much appreciated.
> The working group has so far been clear in its intent where possible
> and consistent with its own work to re-use by reference any relevant
> existing material such as that developed by the MEF Forum. So far it
> has identified SLAs, QoS, and Billing as components that may very well
> be candidates for such re-use.
> At the moment, the working group is at a very early stage. We welcome
> participation by all interested parties, but in particular by service
> providers and service customers since they are the principal users of
> the YANG model under construction. Participation is open to all via
> the mailing list https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/l2sm.
> We wish you well with your January meeting.
> Qin Wu and Adrian Farrel
> L2SM Working Group Chairs
