Hi folks,

  ftp://ftp.isi.edu/in-notes/rfc3584.txt

This excellent document also includes (rather obscurely) the
critical Community MIB - necessary to build a hybrid SNMP
agent that supports SNMPv1c and SNMPv2c (community-based
authentication) as well as SNMPv3 (which is now a full 
Internet Standard).

Note:  Both SNMPv1c and SNMPv2c have been recently moved to 
Historic Status by the IESG, so a product supports them for
compatibility, _not_ for standards compliance.

Cheers,
