Hi,

I have posted a new version of draft-ietf-lmap-restconf. I have tried
to address the Dan Romascanu's review comments and I tried to better
align the text with the other specifications. There are a couple of
open issues where I would like to have guidance from the WG or the
chairs.

a) The document header says Standards Track but since this document
   does not really define anything but merely explains how the various
   pieces fit together, I think the document should be Informational.

b) I added some figures to explain how connection establishment works
   with RESTCONF with and without Call Home. I think Tim wanted to
   have this better explained. It would be nice to receive feedback
   whether the figures address the comment.

c) There are two examples in the appendix. I still need to update them
   to align them with the final version of the data model and to move
   to JSON encoding. (We once decided that the YANG model shows XML
   encoded examples while the RESTCONF document shows JSON encoded
   examples.) If the document becomes Informational, I think it is
   better to move the examples inline instead of having them in an
   appendix.

d) I do not know what to do about section 5. Do we have to discuss in
   this document how RESTCONF configuration is done? My preference is
   to not go there since (a) the relevant specifications are still
   being worked on in NETCONF - so we have to wait on these
   specifications getting stable and (b) there may be several
   different ways to configure certain features and I do not know how
   to select what we should document here and I see also a certain
   risk of ending up with something that is inconsistent with the
   actual specifications. My preference would be to simply point to
   the work-in-progress documents.

If the answer to a) is Informational, to b) Tim's request has been
addressed, to d) we do not go into the details of RESTCONF
configuration, than I can do c) relatively quickly and we may even
move this document to WG last call before IETF 99.
