Overall I found the pre-bakeoff useful. It was good to see that all these printers
could be managed using the printer-MIB. I believe that this MIB could be used by
an Independent Software Developer to implement a package or packages that could
handle all these printers. 


If there is another bake-off I would like to see more work done up front to define
the testing that is going to be done and the report that going to be filled. I
appreciate Genoa testing the hr variables but I would have liked to see a more
complete test of the printer-MIB done.


As for the results as reported. We have not implemented an off-line state within the
printer demonstrated. I am not sure why Running was not reported probably due to the
time crunch at the end of the day. Looks like I will need to do some more investigation 
into the particular printer tested to discover why the hrPrinterDetectedErrorState 
variable reported the same value for both error conditions.
