Re: [802.3_YANG] IEEE 802 compilation report (yang catalog)

Hello Yan,

I am available to work with the group on other warnings as well as module metadata.

Regarding the omission of a "revision" statement- I understand not wanting to have an accumulating number of revision statements for a module in development.  Note there is a middle path between all or nothing, the following excerpt appears on page 12 of RFC 6087, "Guidelines for Authors and Reviewers of YANG Data Model Documents":
   "It is acceptable to reuse the same revision statement within
   unpublished versions (i.e., Internet-Drafts), but the revision date
   MUST be updated to a higher value each time the Internet-Draft is re-
Thus, an alternative would be to maintain a single "revision" sub-statement across iterations of a work-in-progress and just change the revision date each iteration.

Hi Mark,


Thank you for the email and report.

Regarding the error of missing “revision” sub-statement, we had a discussion in the group and decided to add this revision statements to all modules once the modules are finalized. It avoids adding too much revision statements into modules and comments to these revisions every time.

For the other warnings and metadata, it would be good to work with you to resolve them.


Thank you very much.


Best Regards,

Following up on my action item from our call this morning-


Here is a link to the IEEE compilation report from the YANG Catalog.  There are a number of reported errors and warnings, plus a need to add metadata about the modules for the catalog.


I am happy to work on resolution of these issues.
