Hi,

By the way, the link to the final version of DMTF CIM/2.9
(5 January 2005) is:

	http://www.dmtf.org/standards/cim/cim_schema_v29

Be sure to pick up the 'ReadMe'.  There are ZIPs of the
PDF (UML) and MOF (Schema) files.  Don't bother to pick
up the large ZIP of the VISIO (UML) files.

Please send any replies to 'pwg at pwg.org' (as above).

Cheers,
- Ira

Couple things I want to make the broad PWG membership aware of. 

1. PWG and DMTF are discussing how to collaboratively review and update the
DMTF CIM model based on recent enhancements in the Printer MIB v2, WIMS and
the PWG Semantic Model.
 
2. Refreshing the CIM model is a valuable exercise for printer and printer
management vendors because both WS-Management and Oasis WSDM are capable of
leveraging CIM. 

3. This work will rely heavily on the updated Printer MIB v2 and the PWG
Semantic Model (including Counter extensions derived from WIMS). 

4. Pete Zehler, our former champion of the Semantic Model, has encountered a
job reassignment and has had to relinquish his responsibilities as SM Chair
and editor. 

I wold like to encourage your participation in one of two (or both) roles 

A. We need someone (or more) to volunteer to Chair and Edit the Semantic
Model
 
B. When kicked off, we will need participants in the PWG/DMTF collaborative
work effort for updating the CIM model for printers. 

THIS IS A CALL FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION! Please let me know if you are
interested in any of these roles in the near future.
