     Tom, 
     
     I do not agree that it is clear. I guess there is justification in 
     requiring "shall". Note that 3.1 uses must, and 3.2 is a really 
     offhanded  way of specifying a requirement, especially considering the 
     strange  roll of the Host Resources MIB in handling both a superset 
     and a subset of printer (in one table).
     
     I was quite aware of these paragraphs when I indicated that the degree 
     of implementation of the HRMIB needs clarification. I should get a 
     proposal out by tomorrow.
     
     Bill Wagner, DPI

I guess we should all go and re-read RFC 1759 (blush).  In our discussion on the
telecon yesterday, we all forgot what RFC 1759 says about MIB-II and the
Host Resources MIB.  Its pretty clear:




3.  Objects from other MIB Specifications


   This section lists the objects from other IETF MIB specifications
   that are mandatory for conformance to this Printer MIB specification.


3.1.  System Group objects


   All objects in the system group of MIB-II (RFC 1213) must be
   implemented.




Smith, Wright, Hastings, Zilles & Gyllenskog                   [Page 22]
 
RFC 1759                      Printer MIB                     March 1995




3.2.  System Controller


   The System Controller is represented by the Storage and Device Groups
   of the Host Resources MIB (RFC 1514).  These are the only groups that
   are required to be implemented.  Other Groups (System, Running
   Software, Running Software Performance, and Installed Software) may
   be implemented at the discretion of the implementor.


3.3.  Interface Group objects


   All objects in the Interfaces Group of MIB-II (RFC 1213) shall be
   implemented.
