NETCONF,

      The just posted -07 addresses issues raised thus far.
      https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-netconf-https-notif-07 <https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-netconf-https-notif-07>

Henning, Eric, Reshad,

      Please re-review as your comments are important to us.

Everyone else,

      The hasn’t been many reviews as yet.  Please review this
      version, as it is significantly better (ready for publication?)
      than the prevision version.

K.

The authors propose to instead use a sub-resource to the user-configured “path” (e.g., GET /some/path/capabilities) and move the POST URL to another sub-resource (e.g., /some/path/relay-notification).  [see below for more on this]

The authors propose to use “application/[xml/json]” for both cases.
