We have to submit an updated charter to Deidre in order to get reactivated. 
I have generated a proposed new charter based on the original charter. Comments 
are welcome.

Description of Working Group:
The Printer MIB Working Group is chartered to develop a set of managed
objects for networked printers. These objects will be the minimum
necessary to provide the ability to monitor and control these systems,
providing fault, configuration and performance management, and will be
consistent with the SNMP framework and existing SNMP standards.

At its discretion, the working group may also define a small number of
unsolicited notifications (traps) which carry these managed objects.
However, the working group recognizes that traps are used sparingly in
the SNMP framework.

The working group recognizes that the area of networked printers is
quite diverse. However, the working group is specifically confined to
defining managed objects that instrument critical information about:

- printer engine

- interpreters

- media

- input sources

- output destinations

- I/O interfaces

Further, the working group is specifically prohibited from defining
managed objects that define instrumentation about:

- other marking technologies (e.g., those that mark onto film)

- fonts

- spooling

- print job management
 Goals and Milestones: 
     Nov 96     Post first Internet-Draft; continue discussion.                

     Feb 97     Post revised Internet-Draft.                                   

     Apr 97     Meet at Memphis IETF to make final review of MIB.              

     May 97     Submit final Internet-Draft to IESG for consideration as a 
                Draft Standard.                                             


  No Current Internet-Drafts.
