This wiki is for the NETCONF WG. We are going to provide here information related to the NETCONF WG (the page is mostly updated after an IETF meeting listing the higlights of the meeting).

Thanks a lot to Simon Leinen and Randy Bush, who have done an outstanding job hosting the Netconf page on and the NETCONF mailing list!

Please send any suggestions or Netconf related information you would like to see on this Wiki to Netconf WG chairs,
e.g. links to NETCONF implementations, presentations or tutorials.
