Hi, Chairs:
Sorry for late follow up, thanks Jurgen, Andy,Joe, Joel and all others for good comments, here is the update based on discussion and suggestion on the mailing list
The diff is:

Hey, Qin.  I read through the changes, and I have a couple of additional comments.

First, the term “YANG server” sounds odd to me.  I know what you mean, but I haven’t seen this defined before.  Maybe just saying a device or host is sufficient?

[Qin]: Right, “host”, in my opinion, is not a term used in the context of NETCONF, it is also usually referred to end device in many cases, I prefer to use device. The device should have YANG capability.
When you talk about the datastore to be reset, you list <running>, <startup>, and <candidate>.  You state that each will receive the contents of <factory-default>.  The <candidate> DS wouldn’t need that.  I think it would just be zeroed out.

[Qin]: I have no strong opinion for this, <candidate> is also part of read-write configuration datastores, we could reset <candidate>, but I think it is not recommended based on what you say.

I think the RPC should reset any and all non-derived read-write datastores and not imply that a specific DS’s contents (i.e., the factory-default DS) is copied to them.  This way, other DSes would just be handled by this RPC based on implementation.  The <factory-default> can exist as the factory default contents for <startup>.
[Qin]: We have decoupled <factory-reset> rpc from <factory-default> datastore, since <factory-default> datastore is defined as optional datastore in the current version, <factory-default> content can be specified in many different ways, not limited to take content of <factory-default> datastore.
Also <factory-default> content is referred to preconfigured initial configuration that can be used to initialize the configuration of a server.
These will address your comment.


We believe it is ready for second adoption poll. Thanks!

This message concludes the adoption poll for draft-wu-netmod-factory-default-02   The working group consensus supports working on the problem, but fundamental concerns were raised regarding the solution, specifically around reseting datastores versus resetting devices.  The chairs feel that these issues should be addressed before proceeding with the adoption.

Authors, please update and resubmit the draft addressing the comments received during the adoption poll.  Another adoption poll will be issued when ready.
Thank you,
Kent (and Lou and Joel)
