Hi,

[egg on face] My apologies for mis-reading the details pages in
the IETF Data Tracker yesterday.

Let's hope the IESG _does_ approve these MIBs this coming Thursday.

Cheers,
- Ira

Hi all... not sure where Ira retrieved the "announcement" from.
But for all I know, the documents are on the IESG agenda for
coming Thursday and Have NOT yet been approved.

So pls excercise a bot more patience. 
Sorry to spoil the party.

Thanks,
Bert Wijnen, co-AD for the IETF Operations and Management Area
