Jeff, Martin, Rob, Warren,

Any guidance on this? As mentioned below, I favour having the YANG model in the same document. If we go that way, the question then is whether the document is informational or not.

Regards,
Reshad (no hat).

    Tom -

    I defer to chairs/AD in this matter - but here is my understanding of the distinction between Normative and Informative References.
    From https://www.rfc-editor.org/policy.html#policy.refs

    " Within an RFC, references to other documents fall into two general categories: "normative" and "informative". Normative references specify documents that must be read to understand or implement the technology in the new RFC, or whose technology must be present for the technology in the new RFC to work. An informative reference is not normative; rather, it only provides additional information. For example, an informative reference might provide background or historical information. Informative references are not required to implement the technology in the RFC."

    To me what this means is that it is the role of the referenced document in the document in which the reference appears which determines its category - not whether the referenced document itself is Informational or Standard.
    So an Informational RFC could be necessary to understand a standards track document - in which case it SHOULD be a Normative Reference.
    Similarly, a Standards RFC could be merely informational in its role as a reference and therefore be an Informative Reference.

    Of course what Jeff and I are suggesting is that there be one document which includes both YANG and the descriptive text of the functionality and that this be Informational.
    The more relevant question seems to be whether it is a violation of IETF Policy to have YANG defined in an Informational RFC.

    <tp>
    I agree with your characterisation of Normative and Informative.

    With split documents, then it seems clear to me that there would be a Normative Reference from the YANG document to the non-YANG one since it is impossible to make sense of the YANG one without understanding the use of the BFD protocol. If the non-YANG one is Informational, then you have a downref from one to the other which is more work for the AD and IESG which I would seek to avoid.

    I went through YANG and YANG Guidelines and there is no explicit statement that a Normative YANG module (which this one clearly is AFAICT) must be in a Standards Track I-D but there are plenty of places where that is implicit, the alternatives being e.g. the document of another SDO versus IETF Standards track with no consideration of IETF not on the Standards track so I think that a single Informational document is also more work for the AD to push through the IESG.

    Which leaves a single Standards Track document as the best alternative IMHO with text to allay the concerns expressed here about the absence of changes to the protocol.

    I would see Ops AD as the authority on this , the one who has to convince the IESG of the correctness of the WG decision, to make the presence of a YANG module the deciding factor; I cannot recall it arising before. YMMV
