Charter
charter-ietf-netmod-08-07

The Network Modeling (NETMOD) working group is responsible for the YANG
data modeling language, which can be used to specify network management data
models that are transported over such protocols as NETCONF and RESTCONF, and
guidelines for developing YANG models. The NETMOD working group addresses
general topics related to the use of the YANG language and YANG models, for
example, the mapping of YANG modeled data into various encodings. Finally, the
NETMOD working group also defines core YANG models used as basic YANG building
blocks, and YANG models that do not otherwise fall under the charter of any
other IETF working group. The NETMOD WG may include work on YANG modules device
profiles that do not otherwise fall under the charter of any other IETF working
group.
  
The NETMOD WG is responsible for:

   a) Maintaining the data modeling language YANG. This effort entails
      periodically updating the specification to address new requirements
      as they arise.

   b) Maintaining the guidelines for developing YANG models. This effort
      is primarily driven by updates made to the YANG specification.

   c) Maintaining a conceptual framework in which YANG models are used.
      This effort entails describing the generic context that in YANG
      exists and how certain YANG statements interact in that context.
      An example of this is YANG's relationship with datastores.

   d) Maintaining encodings for YANG modeled data. This effort entails
      updating encodings already defined by the NETMOD working group (XML and
      JSON) to accommodate changes to the YANG specification, and defining
      new YANG encodings that are needed, and yet do not fall under the 
      charter of any other active IETF working group.

   e) Maintaining YANG models used as basic YANG building blocks. This
      effort entails updating existing YANG models (ietf-yang-types and
      ietf-inet-types) as needed, as well as defining additional core YANG
      data models when necessary.

   f) Defining and maintaining YANG models that do not fall under the
      charter of any other active IETF working group.

   The NETMOD working group consults with the NETCONF working group to
   ensure that new requirements are understood and can be met by the
   protocols (e.g., NETCONF and RESTCONF) developed within that working
   group.

   The NETMOD working group does not serve as a review team for YANG
   modules developed by other working groups. Instead, the YANG doctors,
   [1] as organized by the OPS area director responsible for network
   management, will act as advisors for other working groups and provide
   YANG reviews for the OPS area directors.
