we had two consensus calls ended on December 4, 2013.

−       Verifing session consensus with the maillist on RFC5539bis new port and YANG module separation
−       Verifing session consensus on RESTCONF as WG item with the maillist

The co-chairs think that there was support for the action points and no objections to the consensus from the Vancouver NETCONF session.
We think we can go one step further. The co-chairs agreed to have Reverse SSH as a separate document for the time being.

Below is the relevant part of the draft charter. Please comment by December 20, 2013 EOB PT.
We will then pass it on to our AD for approval by IESG.

Bert & Mehmet


  In the current phase of NETCONF's incremental development the workgroup
  will focus on following items:

  1. Develop the call home mechanism for the mandatory SSH binding (Reverse
  SSH) providing a server-initiated session establishment.

  2. Advance NETCONF over TLS to be in-line with NETCONF 1.1 (i.e., update
  RFC 5539) and add the call home mechanism to provide a server-initiated
  session establishment.

  3. Combine the server configuration data models from Reverse SSH and
  RFC5539bis drafts in a separate YANG module.

  4. Develop a RESTful protocol (RESTCONF) that provides a programmatic
  interface for accessing data defined in YANG, using the datastores
  defined in NETCONF. The two parts concerning RESTCONF protocol over
  HTTP and the YANG patch operation will be prepared in separate drafts.

Goals and Milestones:
  Jan 2014 - Submit initial WG drafts for RESTCONF as WG item
  Apr 2014 - WGLC for RFC5539bis
  Apr 2014 - WGLC for Reverse SSH
  Apr 2014 - WGLC for NETCONF server configuration data model
  May 2014 - Submit Reverse SSH to AD/IESG for consideration as Proposed Standard
  May 2014 - Submit RFC5539bis to AD/IESG for consideration as Proposed Standard
  Jun 2014 - WGLC for RESTCONF
  Aug 2014 - Submit RESTCONF to AD/IESG for consideration as Proposed Standard
