    • MAC Address Format
      • Reviewed slides in agenda
      • Action Items:
        • Scott to talk to 802.3 about mac-address definition used in published YANG.  The 802.3 modules use the IETF mac-address YANG module.
        • Review IEEE modules for mac-address formats used
        • Review IETF modules for mac-address formats used
        • Rob Wilton has volunteered to help with communication with the IETF YANG Doctors.
        • String comparison seems to be the issue.  There is currently no semantics to indicate when strings match
          • This is important when strings are used as keys
        • String display hints is not a feature in YANG either
  • New Issues
    • Naming Guidelines
      • Slides reviewed
      • Use shorter names where possible but avoid abbreviations and contrived acronyms that are not in common use.
      • Leverage the context of the tree to help make names shorter but be wary of deleting too many words.
    • Identities with Multiple Bases
      • Information noted and contributions requested
    • New Meeting Minute Format
      • Need to support the new Meeting Minute Format --- TBD
  • Continue Maintenance/Guidelines Discussion
  • Any Other Business
  • Next week
