Authors, OPS-DIR,

I am the assigned OPS-DIR reviewer of 
draft-mm-netconf-time-capability, a draft which has reached
IETF Last Call as an individual submission, intended for 
Experimental Status. Last Call ends today.

I note the Gen-ART review of Robert Sparks, 


http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/ietf/current/msg93777.html


and Andy Bierman's reply:


http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/ietf/current/msg93815.html



Some have indicated support for the features proposed in this
draft in recent weeks:


http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/netconf/current/msg10312.html



Many folks on the list *are* NETCONF experts, and I am not.

Rather than attempt a detailed OPS-DIR review for an Experimental draft,
I thought it might be useful to start from a use case for the 
proposed features. The was a short discussion of this draft in
connection with the TWAMP YANG model and the need to trigger
the start of test sessions (on ippm-list): 


https://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/ippm/current/msg03807.html


which concluded the experimental feature did not match the need.
Certainly, other use cases are possible, and perhaps they will
emerge during further discussion.

regards,
Al
