The question of why we are doing the interoperability testing the first week of 
December
has come up in previous e-mail. Therefore I wanted to address this up front. 
Chris and
I think we need to present the Interoperability testing results at one IETF meet
ing
before we could progress to Draft Standard at the IETF meeting 3 months later. 
With
the current schedule that we are on, we need to present the interoperability 
results
at the December IETF meeting before progressing to Draft Standard at the April 
IETF
meeting. If anything changes to negate our assumptions, we will let everyone 
know.


The cost of the Printer MIB is going to be $1800 per participant ($9000/5 
participants).
The 5 participants are HP, IBM, Kyocera, Lexmark, and Tektronix. Xerox and 
Novell can
not participate due to various reasons. Only a majority of participants is 
required
therefore we want to proceed with these 5 participants. Payment can be made via 
check
made payable to Stardust Winsock Labs or by American Express, MasterCard, or 
Visa.
If you are paying by check, Stardust requested that these be sent before 12/2. 
If
you are paying by credit card, this can be done on Monday 12/2.


Chris, Jay and I plan on having a detailed test plan out to the PWG mailing 
list on
Thursday 11/21. However I wanted to go ahead and get some information out now so
people can make travel and shipping arrangements.
