Draft is updated. Per the description in the front matter:

This version of the PWG Proposed Standard is available electronically at:
ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wbmm/wd/latestdraft.doc in change-tracked Word format, and
ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wbmm/wd/latestdraft.rtf marked up.

A non-changed-tracked PDF copy is also available in 

(the RTF is very large, so in the future, I will change the front matter to indicate the non-MS Word latestdraft markup will be PDF)

Open items (in no particular priority) include:
1. Returns and exceptions to operations
2. I have notes to add PauseAndDisable comment and  ResumeAndEnable comment (but have forgotten what these are)
3. Report and Alert Schema
4. WSDL references

Best regards,

Bill Wagner

Hi Bill,                                        Monday (19 January 2004)

My belated comments on the latest WBMM spec 'wd-wbmm01-20031231x.pdf':

(1) Global
    - please regenerate Table of Contents (missing stuff) - thanks.

(2) Global
    - change 'Managed Service or device' to 'Managed Service or Device'.
    - better - change 'Managed Service or device' to 'Managed Entity'.

(3) Global
    - change 'WBMM Monitoring Interface' to 'WBMM Managed Entity
      Interface' (per section 5.1)
    - change 'WBMM Management Interface' to 'WBMM Management Station
      Interface' (per section 5.2)

(4) Section 2.2
    - insert 'WBMM' prefix in front of the defined terms:
      'Managed Device', 'Management Station', 'Management Proxy', and
      'Imaging System'.

(5) Section 4.3
    - change 'soap+XML' to 'soap+xml' (per RFC 3023 canonical spelling).
    - change 'WBMM Management Stations' to 'WBMM Management Stations,
      WBMM Management Proxies, or WBMM Managed Entities'.

(6) Section 4.5 (and elsewhere?)
    - change 'WBMM managed entities' to 'WBMM Managed Entities'.

(7) Section 5.1.4 and Abstract
    - change 'RegisterForMgmt' to 'RegisterForManagement' (because all
      our other operations have words fully spelled out).

(8) Section 5.1.5 and Abstract
    - change 'UnRegisterForMgmt' to 'UnregisterForManagement' (because
      'unregister' is a single word - consistent with PSI/1.0 spec).

(9) Section 5.3.17
    - remove erroneous '12/31/2003' from section title

(10) Section 5
    - the diagram is damaged (truncated) in the PDF version.

(11) Section 5.3 and all subsections
    - change 'legacy Managed Device' to 'Legacy Managed Device'.
    - change 'Management Station' to 'WBMM Management Station'.

(12) Section 5.3.12
    - delete 'service or device' in Description (it's redundant).

(13) Section 5.3.15
    - replace entire broken definition of 'notifyEvents' with:
      "list of event names to be delivered via SendAlert."
      (this was my error in HTML original draft of spec)

(14) Section 5.3.17
    - change 'service or device' to 'WBMM Managed Entity' in Description

(15) Section 7
    - in second paragraph, change 'of Schedule and Resource' to
      'of Schedule, Resource, Alert, and Report'.

(16) Section 14 - Appendix X
    - please keep up this 'Change Log' at some level of detail - thanks.

- Ira
