Hi Bill,

As of now, we have 9 acknowledgments of the Power MIB
last call.

BTW, quorum for last call is 30% of 25 voting members = 7.

Non-voting members do not count for last call quorum.

I'll be updating the specs with changes per last call comments.
I'll try to have these updates before this Thursday, but there is
no urgency, since Formal Vote will be held in January.

We will review the final changes made from last call at the
December F2F, but we will not make *any* further changes,
unless a compelling technical issue is raised.

Possible IETF EMAN work may or may not be of interest
in future years.

The DMTF CIM and ACPI power management standards
are already deployed and are the basis of the PWG Power

Indeed, there already is an Energy-aware Networks and Devices MIB Internet Draft (https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-parello-eman-energy-aware-mib ), which I fully expect will have major revisions if and when it is approved.
