Ira, 

I agree with the changes you proposed:
icGeneralNaturalLanguage - should stay 63 - IPP uses 63
icMediaUsedMediaSizeName - should change to 255 - IPP uses 255
icMediaUsedMediaName - should change to 255 - IPP uses 255
icAlertCounterName - should stay 63 - value is an ASN.1 identifier

Subject: MIB - Expanding string lengths in Counter MIB

Hi Pete,

The Counter MIB (as distinct from spec or schema) follows
the Job MIB usage for media name of 63 octets.  Whereas, 
IPP uses 255.  I could lengthen the string in the MIB (a 
backwards compatible change).  Should I do that?

Altogether, four strings in the Counter MIB follow the Job
MIB usage for 63 octets and might be lengthened:

icGeneralNaturalLanguage - should stay 63 - IPP uses 63
icMediaUsedMediaSizeName - should change to 255 - IPP uses 255
icMediaUsedMediaName - should change to 255 - IPP uses 255
icAlertCounterName - should stay 63 - value is an ASN.1 identifier

Cheers,
- Ira

Ira,
Thanks, I fixed that so it is now on the correct day.  Any problem with
the counter MIB change for the maximum size of a media size name (i.e.
0..63 to 0..255)?

Hi Pete,

The Google calendar shows MFD meeting NOW on Wednesday.
Which does not agree with your meeting announcement on
Tuesday.  Huh?

Cheers,
