Since this is a bad week for me (I have 4,000 people coming to this little
of 250 for a music festival I produce), I'd like to suggest cancelling this
Either Tuesday (16 August) or Thursday (18 August) are OK for me to have
the next WIMS telecon, due to Bill's conflict on Wednesday (17 August).
I hope to get out a plaintext proposal for a brief WIMS Protocol Requirement
chapter in time for next week's meeting. The text I developed for the
Spec (which borrowed heavily from the substance of the use cases in the
WIMS Protocol spec) should be a good starting point.

Subject: WIMS> WIMS Next steps and Conference calls 10 Aug and 17 August
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
As of now, I will be able to lead the WIMS/CIM calls of Thursdays of both
Bill Wagner, WIMS WG Chairman.
