> Subject: Writable MIB Module IESG Statement
> The IESG is aware of discussions in the OPS area and in a number of
> working groups about the current practice for standards-based approaches
> to configuration. The OPS area has shown strong support for the use of
> NETCONF/YANG while many working groups continue to specify MIB modules
> for this purpose. The IESG wishes to clarify this situation with this
> - IETF working groups are therefore encouraged to use the NETCONF/YANG
> standards for configuration, especially in new charters.
> - SNMP MIB modules creating and modifying configuration state should
> only be produced by working groups in cases of clear utility and
> consensus to use SNMP write operations for configuration, and in
> consultation with the OPS ADs/MIB doctors.
