I wanted to let this mailing list know about the availability of an
early public draft of the Carrier Grade Linux v3.0 Serviceability 
specification, available at


The requirements in this document are aimed at supporting serviceability
of a network element in a carrier-grade environment.

I acknowledge that the requirements in this draft are being implemented
in a variety of ways and many of the requirements in this document exist
in current implementations.  I am contacting this mailing list because I
believe your projects and expertise may address some of the requirements
and we'd like to solicit feedback.

Again, this is an early draft document of the v3.0 serviceability
requirements spec.  Past OSDL Carrier Grade Linux technical documents 
have contained all requirements in a single document.  For OSDL CGL 
v3.0 draft releases, we are releasing them as more granular sections, 
roughly split on functional boundaries.  These boundaries are 
Standards, Availability, Clustering, Hardware, 
Performance, Security, and Serviceability (this document).

More information on Carrier Grade Linux and the Carrier Grade Linux
Working Group can be found at


Feel free to direct any comments on the spec to me directly at
jkrauska at cisco.com or to our mailing list at cgl_discussion at osdl.org.
