There have been no further comments on the last draft of the counter spec, so I request that Jerry, as PWG secretary, release the document as a stable working draft and put it up for PWG vote.
With the Counter MIB being relegated to WIMS WG work-in-progress pending prototype, the next order of WG business is the protocol spec, and specifically the addition of suitable requirements information. Ira seems intent on doing this himself, but he is understandably occupied just now with CIM work as well as other standards and musical efforts.
The protocol spec is primarily Ira's work, with some modest contribution from myself and the all important prototyping from Harry's group. I think overall review by and contributions from others, of the entire premise as well as the Requirements section, would be beneficial both to the effectiveness of the protocol and the comprehensibility of the document. I sincerely invite such consideration and hope that we may have some constructive discussion during the conference calls.
I will be unable to participate in WIMS conference calls at the usual time on either 10 August (due to travel) or 17 August (for personal reasons). I suggest that we skip the 10 August call with the objective of getting some specific material to discuss. I suggest rescheduling the 17 August call to either Tuesday or Thursday of that week. Or Harry can host a meeting at the regular Wednesday time in my absence. Please send preferences to the mail list.
As of now, I will be able to lead the WIMS/CIM calls of Thursdays of both weeks.
Bill Wagner, WIMS WG Chairman.
