Technical Summary YANG is a data modeling language used to model configuration and state data manipulated by the Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) protocol, NETCONF remote procedure calls, and NETCONF notifications. YANG is used to model the operations and content layers of NETCONF. This document describes the syntax and semantics of the YANG language, how the data model defined in a YANG module is represented in XML, and how NETCONF operations are used to manipulate the data. Working Group Summary Consensus was reached among all interested parties before requesting the publication of this document. Document Quality There are multiple independent implementations of YANG today, both commercial and freely-available code and verification tools. Personnel David Partain is the document shepherd. Dan Romascanu is the responsible AD. RFC Editor Note OLD: 7.19.3. The description Statement The "description" statement takes as an argument a string which contains a high-level textual description of this definition. NEW: 7.19.3. The description Statement The "description" statement takes as an argument a string which contains a human-readable textual description of this definition. The text is provided in a language (or languages) chosen by the module developer; for the sake of interoperability it is RECOMMENDED to choose a language that is widely understood among the community of network administrators who will use the module.
