Hi Ira,

 

I will post WIMS meeting slides with updated links later today.

 

Presently plenary slides do not include CIM or alerts links. I assume alerts
will change Thursday regardless.

 

I do not understand your scope issue. I had pulled the MFD alerts comments
from previous minutes and do not see where I have increased the scope. You
can certainly clarify the limits on what you intend to do during the
meeting.

 

Thanks,

 

Bill Wagner

Subject: CIM Print and MFD Alert Groups - please update PWG agenda and WIMS
slides

 

Hi Mike and Bill,

I would appreciate it if you guys could add links to my releases 
yesterday to the PWG F2F agenda and the WIMS WG slides for:
(a) revised CIM Print MOFs; and (b) revised MFD Alert Groups 
spec.

We have a *major* scope issue in the current WIMS WG slides.

The existing MFD Alert Groups spec ONLY defines new values
for PrtAlertGroupTC.  It does NOT define any actual new values
for PrtAlertCodeTC for the new subunits.

Adding specific alerts for Scanner, FaxModem, or security  would 
be a major expansion of scope.

And adding specific alerts for Scanner, FaxModem, etc. (rather
than using the existing subunit generic alerts from Printer MIB v2)
would be architecturally risky because...

We do NOT plan to develop a ScanDevice or FaxDevice MIB at 
present (and I don't want to tackle them now).

Comments?

Cheers,
- Ira (Editor of MFD Alert Groups)
