Andy,

You are correct...

However I forwarded the mail from David S and Qin Wu that were sent to
the routing-discuss mail list yesterday to the mpls wg.

I also sent a mail to the authors of the mpls yang models with the
instruction to the authors to fill in the list of yang models, so far
at least half of the author groups have done so,

This mail was a follow up (third in a suite) I didn't think that that
it would be necessary to repeat what should be done, this was about
who should do it.

/Loa
