Hi,
 
RESEND - I didn't ever get this back from the WIMS reflector - I think
there may have been an email glitch at Sharp Labs this morning (no
spams for three hours - that never happens).
 
Cheers,
- Ira

Hi Harry,
 
The essence of our discussion yesterday was that we worker bees (Rick and I)
intend to model _all_ of the Subunits and move them into DMTF CIM Core WG
review as quickly as possible anyway.  
 
But the process delays on any given CR are so long (months) that we don't 
want to touch any given class twice.  We'll get the Printer MIB v2 stuff into 
CIM_Printer just as soon as we can (perhaps before some of the others).
But CIM_Printer is scheduled to have some properties deprecated and is
likely to run into more trouble in CIM Core review, I think.
 
The four normative pointer dependencies from the MIB are:
 
    prtInputDefaultIndex - value of CIM_PrintInputTray.Id
    prtOutputDefaultIndex - value of CIM_PrintOutputTray.Id
    prtMarkerDefaultIndex - value of CIM_PrintMarker.Id
    prtMediaPathDefaultIndex - value of CIM_PrintMediaPath.Id
 
The first three classes have already been modelled - and it is likely that the
CIM_PrintOutputTray will be approved tomorrow (or next week at latest).
 
The CIM_PrintMediaPath class is quite simple.

Ira, thanks for the clarifications. I agree hr MIB is out of scope for this exercise of prioritizing Printer MIB Groups... I just wanted to make sure we weren't missing these fundamental properties. Sounds like we've already captured most of them. Only difficulty I feel we are left with is prtGeneral. I understand there are defaults that depend normatively on other subunits but there are also independent properties which I believe are utmost essential (eg... many of us felt printer s/n was a glaring omission from Printer MIB v1). Not sure how to resolve this.

Hi Harry,

(1) Printer MIB v2 additions
   - in the great spreadsheet of properties, we all gave
     high rankings to _some_ of these (i.e., ServicePerson)
(2) prtGeneral last
   - because the default pointers will depend normatively
     (with ModelCorrespondence clauses which MUST NOT be
     black holes to pass CIM Core review) on the newly
     created Subunit classes that define 'Xxx.Id' (e.g.,
     prtInputIndex).
   - if we submit it earlier, they'll just reject it
(3) hrPrinterDetectedErrorState
   - already in CIM_Printer.DetectedErrorState
   - in CIM Refresh Phase 1, we added the new enum values
(4) hrDeviceStatus
   - already in CIM_LogicalDevice.Availability
   - which is the parent class of CIM_Printer
(5) hrPrinterStatus
   - already in CIM_Printer.PrinterStatus
     (we added the MappingStrings in CIM Refresh Phase 1)
(6) hrDeviceID 
   - not in CIM Model at all - completely out-of-scope
(7) sysDescr
   - not in CIM Model at all - completely out-of-scope

Cheers,
- Ira

In doing the exercise... some thoughts... 

1. I gave greater weight to stuff we added in Printer MIB v2 because if it wasn't so important... why'd we add it? 
2. I see a lot of people put prtGeneral last because it "depends on all other classes". But there are some very useful (independent) attributes in prtGeneral (like Name, S/N, Operator/ServicePerson etc.) 
3. Where does hrPrinterDetectedErrorState fall in all of this? Not part of Printer MIB but... as you all know... one of my all time favorites ;-) 
 - hrDeviceStatus, hrPrinterStatus, hrDeviceID and sysDescr... all fundamental (and so were referenced in the Printer MIB), 

My ordering of the list... 

(0)  CIM_Printer - prtGeneralTable (contains valuable independent elements: example S/N) 
(1)  CIM_PrintAlertLog - prtAlertTable 
(2)  CIM_PrintAlertRecord - prtAlertEntry 
      I agree with Rick… these are inseparable 
(3)  CIM_PrintInputTray - prtInputTable - done - not submitted to DMTF 
(4)  CIM_PrintOutputTray - prtOutputTable - done - in progress at DMTF 
(5)  CIM_PrintDeviceCover – prtCoverTable 
(6)  CIM_PrintMarker - prtMarkerTable - done - not submitted to DMTF 
(7)  CIM_PrintSupply - prtMarkerSuppliesTable 
(8)  CIM_PrintConsoleDisplayBuffer – prtConsoleDisplayBufferTable 
(9)  CIM_PrintColorant - prtMarkerColorantTable 
(10) CIM_PrintConsoleLight – prtConsoleLightTable 
(11) CIM_PrintMediaPath - prtMediaPathTable 
(12) CIM_PrintInterpreter - prtInterpreterTable 
(13) CIM_PrintChannel - prtChannelTable - done - not submitted to DMTF

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
