Those are good discussion points. Let’s
make a list and get guidance from Glenn.
Clarify where to get more
information on terms used in the IEEE License text
context given in
ii. Pointer to
IEEE standards development process could also be provided
- Pointer to
IEEE-SA Copyright Policy
information for more information
Be explicit on if
this is 802 or all IEEE-SA
We need to understand
that this YANG GitHub is used by people who never attend
IEEE 802 face-to-face meetings, and therefore the reader is
not familiar at all with IEEE legal policies, or how IEEE
standards are developed.
What is "IEEE
The uppercase 'C'
doesn't really tell me anything. Is the implication that
IEEE has a legal definition of that term somewhere? If so,
can we provide a link to formalize that?
In the context of
this GitHub, what does "IEEE standards development" mean?
I assume it means the
standard branch and not the experimental branch. If so, we
need to state that explicitly. We also need to link to the
process for "standards development" (PAR etc).
Where is "IEEE-SA
If we mean this:
we should link it.
Otherwise the reader is at the whim of a web search.
Also, who does the
reader contact for follow up questions?
I assume that would
be someone in IEEE-SA, because IEEE 802 is only a single
working group in IEEE.
It is important to ensure the IEEE License
text is clearly attributed in the YANG GitHub. Attached is a
draft of a presentation that I will give at the 802.1 Interim
session on YANG. I will provide an update of the discussion
that occurs. If you have any comments, please share.
