Thanks to Randy for getting the Printer MIB updated.
I looked for a change that I expected and found that it had not been made.
When I checked the October meeting minutes, I couldn't find a record of the
discussion I had in my own notes. From my notes I have:
Input Switching Group
This is a new group of objects that was added to provide timeouts for
manual feed operations. The group will be generalized to provide timeouts
for all media load requests. InputManualFeedTimeout will become
InputMediaLoadTimeout. Tom H. will post the changes.
Does anyone recall this discussion?
Looking further I found that the items covered at the October meeting
didn't make it into the document. Specifically, from the meeting minutes:
Discussion Items: Pentecost/HP
The following is from a MIB review held at HP.
1. 126.96.36.199, third paragraph: After "... it removes the corresponding
leading edge event." add "Removing the leading edge entry may cause the
unary change event alertRemovalOfBinaryChangeEntry to be added to the ta
2. Appendix A: Add definitions for: spot color, process color, impressions.
3. Appendix E: Update authors & addresses; add Binnur Al-Kazily as an
4. Appendix A: Collation description should read "...placing the pages from
separate copies into separate ordered sets, ready for binding." By
including "separate output bins" the definition is unnecessarily
5. Item deleted (already fixed).
6. prtInputMediaType: The object "prtInputMediaColor" indicates that the
implementor is free to add additional string values as long as they follow
a certain naming convention. This object makes no such mention. Does this
imply that the implementor may NOT add additional strings?
7. prtOutputPageCollated: Description should be continued with "Collation
is the process by which multiple copy output places the pages from separate
copies into separate ordered sets, ready for binding".
8. prtOutputOffsetStacking: Description should be continued with "Offset
stacking is the process by which output pages are physically displaced in
order to separate them"
9. prtMediaPathMaxSpeed: If using "impressions per hour" unit of measure,
there is no indication of the size of paper that will deliver that
performance. This number is meaningful only for a specific (but
unspecified) size of paper.
10. prtInterpreterLangFamily: Remove the sentence "This type 2 list of
enumerations requires review before additional entries are made."
The following are the results/decision relating to the above items:
#1. Approved, add sentence after 3rd sentence in 188.8.131.52.
#2. Approved, Spot Color, Process Color and Impressions will be written by
Tom Hastings and sent to the mailing list.
#3. Approved, authors and participants will be updated by Don Wright and
forwarded to the editor.
#5. Already done.
#6. Approved. Add workding about ISO9070 from prtInputMediaColor to
prtInputMediatype something like "Implementors may add additional string
values. The naming conventions in ISO 9070 are recommended in order to
avoid potential name clashes." to end of prtInputMediaType description.
#7. Approved. Add definition of collation from the glossary.
#8. Approved. Add definition of offset stacking from the glossary.
#9. Rejected. Good idea but impractical to implement differently. Most
implementors will spec this based on Letter or A4 paper.
#10. Approved because this information is already stated elsewhere.
The following are considered to be typos and will be fixed by the editor
unless he discovers them to be otherwise.
I didn't check the complete list of typos, but it appeared that some were
fixed and some were not.
While these changes are of a clarifying nature I believe that they should
be in the document, especially in light of the fact that we spent meeting
time to approve them.
