Dear all, The NETMOD and NETCONF WGs thank you for referencing the work of the IETF and contributing to the drafts you mention through the IETF process. This is by far the best way to complete the work in a timely manner and continues to foster the open and cooperative working relationship between the IETF and the Broadband Forum. In the mean time, the two drafts you note became WG documents: draft-ietf-netmod-entity and draft-ietf-netmod-intf-ext-yang-00. We encourage you to follow progress on data tracker https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-netmod-intf-ext-yang/ and https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-netmod-entity/ and through the participation you have noted. Regarding your interest to work on "forwarding/QoS and required protocols (e.g. layer 2 multicast model & DHCP)", please note that there are already a couple of forwarding related YANG data models, mainly L3 forwarding. There is also a QoS related YANG data model, draft-asechoud-netmod-qos-model, which we believe could become a WG document. And finally, a YANG multicast design team, https://trac.tools.ietf.org/wg/pim/trac/wiki/yang, focuses on producing PIM and IGMP/MLD YANG data models. Please work with the respective contributors so that the layer 2 specific data model aspects nicely fit in the overall data models. If you have interest in other related IETF work please don't hesitate to let us know. Please continue to keep us apprised of your work noted.
