Attached is the proposed schedule that I plan to saend out on PWG announce. Comments or changes? Ira, I put some of your recent emails up on the web, since they represent major points of discussion and the attendees may not be on this list.
The WBMM working group, in pursuing its charter, has encountered management aspects that should be of interest in areas well beyond the specifics of remote management over the web. Indeed, to adequately address the general question of "fleet" management, the group has had to
A: revisit resource and notification areas originally addressed in pending IPP documents,
B: define an extensive set of "use counter" variables to be added to the MIB
C: start to address the management of Multifunction units, since most of the enterprise imaging units applicable to fleet management are of this type.
This is in addition to the XML representation of the management objects presently in the MIB, a representation that is being applied to areas other than fleet management as well.
Considering the general nature of these subjects, the WBMM face-to-face agenda is structured to generally present and discuss these areas in the morning. In the afternoon session, we will go into more of the details of these areas and address specific web management aspects.
Because of the impact these issues are anticipated to have on imaging devices, services and clients, we urge PWG members to participate in the consideration of these general items, particularly in morning session even if they have no interest in fleet management. Everyone is. of course, invited to stay for the afternoon session as well.
