Proposed ordering of CIM groups remaining to be done.  
                                        Rick Landau 20070411

0.   CIM_PrintOutputTray - prtOutputTable - done - in progress at DMTF

1.   CIM_PrintInputTray - prtInputTable - done - not submitted to DMTF
2.   CIM_PrintSupply - prtMarkerSuppliesTable
3.5  CIM_PrintAlertLog - prtAlertTable
3.5  CIM_PrintAlertRecord - prtAlertEntry
(I don't understand how these two could be separated.)  
5.   CIM_PrintDeviceCover - prtCoverTable

6.   CIM_PrintMarker - prtMarkerTable - done - not submitted to DMTF
7.   CIM_PrintChannel - prtChannelTable - done - not submitted to DMTF

8.   CIM_PrintMediaPath - prtMediaPathTable
9.   CIM_PrintConsoleLight - prtConsoleLightTable
10.  CIM_PrintConsoleDisplayBuffer - prtConsoleDisplayBufferTable
11.  CIM_PrintColorant - prtMarkerColorantTable
12.  CIM_PrintInterpreter - prtInterpreterTable

13.  CIM_Printer - prtGeneralTable - last - depends on all other classes


Rationale:

- Must have: things that impede primary function (i.e., printing), 
that tell the user what's wrong.
- Must have: things that warn the user that something is about to 
go wrong.  
(Out of paper, out of toner, jammed, cover open.)

- Should have: info needed to configure spooler or driver.  
- Should have: accounting info, counters.

- Nice to have: inventory and asset info, capabilities.
- Nice to have: default values (if they're not writable, less
important).
- Nice to have: settings, such as channel enablements (if they're not
writable, less important).

Wed 11 April

Hi,                                              Thursday (5 April 2007)

*** Action:    Send your ordered list of CIM MOF classes
*** Due Date:  End-of-day Wednesday 11 April 2007

*** To:        All PWG members
*** Reply To:  wims at pwg.org
*** Note:      Do NOT reply to pwg-announce at pwg.org


Background:  As a result of the slow CIM Core WG process, we urgently
need to reach concensus on the ORDER in which we will model the tables
from the Printer MIB (RFC 1759/3805) into CIM MOF classes, as described
in Rick Landau's document posted in the directory:

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/cim

in the file:

    td_PrintClassGroupings_v09_20070208.pdf


Below is my own ordered list of CIM MOF classes:

(0)  CIM_PrintOutputTray - prtOutputTable - done - in progress at DMTF

(1)  CIM_PrintInputTray - prtInputTable - done - not submitted to DMTF
(2)  CIM_PrintMarker - prtMarkerTable - done - not submitted to DMTF
(3)  CIM_PrintChannel - prtChannelTable - done - not submitted to DMTF

(4)  CIM_PrintSupply - prtMarkerSuppliesTable
(5)  CIM_PrintDeviceCover - prtCoverTable
(6)  CIM_PrintAlertLog - prtAlertTable
(7)  CIM_PrintAlertRecord - prtAlertEntry

(8)  CIM_PrintMediaPath - prtMediaPathTable
(9)  CIM_PrintInterpreter - prtInterpreterTable

(10) CIM_PrintColorant - prtMarkerColorantTable
(11) CIM_PrintConsoleLight - prtConsoleLightTable
(12) CIM_PrintConsoleDisplayBuffer - prtConsoleDisplayBufferTable

(13) CIM_Printer - prtGeneralTable - last - depends on all other classes


At the WIMS-CIM telecon on Thursday 12 April we will determine concensus
on the ordered list - Rick Landau and I will follow this concensus.

Cheers,
- Ira
