Hi folks,                                      Tuesday (19 October 2004)

[for discussion at tomorrow's WIMS telecon]

I have just posted an initial Subunits XML schema v0.10, which validates
without warnings using XML SPY 2004, XRay 2.0, and XSV 2.5 (the free XML
Schema Validator) at:

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/schemas/subunits-20041019.xsd

This version completely expresses in XML schema (in alphabetical order)
the following subunits from the model in the Printer MIB v2 (RFC 3805):

    Channel - input job channel
    Console - local device console
    Cover - cover or door
    Input - input tray
    Interface - interface from MIB-II (RFC 1213)

Note the types 'SubunitCounter[16|32]', 'SubunitIdentifier[16|32]',
and 'SubunitPointer[16|32]' that add clarity.  And the out-of-band
values in various counters and gauges are handled by new attributes
using types 'SubunitCounterBasisWKV' and 'SubunitPointerBasisWKV'.

Cheers,
- Ira
