I support adopting this draft as a workgroup item.

Others have mentioned a few items to clarify/modify. I think there are a few that jump out at me:

  *   What Martin said about how to evolve section 4.
  *   The augmentation requirements mentioned by Joe, i.e. making sure they are enabled (or at least not prevented!).
  *   Encoding issue mentioned by Rob.
  *   Datastore issue mentioned by Juergen (should be optionally specified).
  *   Server capabilities as mentioned by Alex; specifically, it’s not clear to me yet how the correct versions of the models used inside instance data are defined.

It would perhaps be interesting to talk about containing multiple instances of an instance-data-set, but it’s not clear to me that that would add much value.

I submitted a new version of the yang-instance-data draft updated with comments from the last IETF and others. I would like to get this adopted as a workgroup item. Please review it and if you like it please indicate that you support it as a workgroup item.

   o  Redefined using yang-data-ext
   o  Moved meta data into ordinary leafs/leaf-lists
   o  Corrections, clarifications

regards Balazs

A new version of I-D, draft-lengyel-netmod-yang-instance-data-01.txt
has been successfully submitted by Balazs Lengyel and posted to the
IETF repository.

Name:           draft-lengyel-netmod-yang-instance-data
Revision:       01
Title:          YANG Instance Data Files and their use for Documenting Server Capabilities
Document date:  2018-06-13
Group:          Individual Submission
Pages:          10

   This document specifies a standard file format for YANG instance
   data, that is data that could be stored in a datastore and whose
   syntax and semantics is defined by YANG models.  Instance data files
   can be used to provide information that is defined in design time.
   There is a need to document Server capabilities (which are often
   specified in design time), which should be done using instance data

Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
until the htmlized version and diff are available at<>.
