All,

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.


<ira>
Thanks for the instant turnaround Bill!

Dated version of latest draft source is now stored at:
  ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wbmm/wd/wd-wbmm10-20040119.doc

(Bill - we adopted this in PSI so that a permanent archive of dated drafts
from the WG is available, _in_addition_ to the current files 'latest...')
</ira>


A non-changed-tracked PDF copy is also available in 
ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wbmm/wd/wd-wbmm10-20040119.pdf

(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)


<ira>
Add to the end of the Description in section 5.3.4 'Pause':

Note:  'Deactivate-Printer' defined in section 3.4.1 of 
[IPP-ADM] (a compound operation) can be accomplished in
a Schedule by a 'Pause' action followed by a 'Disable'
action.

Add to the end of the Description in section 5.3.5 'Resume':

Note:  'Activate-Printer' defined in section 3.4.2 of
[IPP-ADM] (a compound operation) can be accomplished in
a Schedule by a 'Resume' action followed by an 'Enable'
action.
</ira>


3. Report and Alert Schema


<ira>
I have some work-in-progress on Alert schema, which will
eventually include both Alert object (simplified IPP
Notification object) and Subscription object (to support
more than one outstanding subscription on a single 
Managed Entity, in the future, for example from two
DIFFERENT Management Stations for events - Subscription
objects could be queried via ordinary an 'GetElements' 
action).

3a. Printer MIB Schema

I also have nearly complete a release of a new, more
faithful, machine translation of Printer MIB v2 into
XML schema (for use by PWG WBMM and by FSG Japan Bi-Di
Printer API project).  This version has all integer
ranges and all string size limits captured correctly.
All object element and type names remain identical to
my original May 2003 machine translation.
</ira>


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.

Cheers,
- Ira
