    • Comments from GitHub
      • If someone submits YANG, makes a comment, or makes a pull request, there is no defined process to deal with them.  They are simply contributions. 
      • In most cases they would be contributions from folks unfamiliar with the 802.1 process.   It is our choice if we want to take the comments as rogue inputs to an existing ballot vs asking the commenter to make those requests themselves in the 802.1 process or have someone else make them.  I think so far, we have tended to be charitable and had the relevant comments added in by the editor in a ballot. 
      • We discussed this in the beginning of YANGsters and the process was written down here:
      • It basically says all github comments are advice to the editor.
    • Email address text

    • See:
    • Continued with #11.
      • 11a: is resolved
      • 11b:  Check the mentioned elements to see if they exist in Clause 12 and Clause 17, they are not in the YANG.  The Static VLAN registry entries are missing.
      • 11c:  Will be solved as a maintenance item, the YANG does not need to be changed.
      • 12:  AI on Marc Holness to review the meaning of database-id and determine if it is needed based on the description in 12.7.  Also look to see if 12.7.7 is the correct reference.
  • Any Other Business
    • No other business.
