Evidently there is some opinion in the IPP working group that
the Printer MIB is stalled with the IETF because of the MIME vs
enum discussion for interpreter types. I wanted to assure
everyone within the PMP working group that as far as Chris and
I are concerned this is not the case at all. Chris and I are
working on taking the Printer MIB as currently defined forward
to our Area Directors as a Draft Standard.

going to be raised against the Printer MIB in the Atlanta IPP
working group session to "keep the same Printer MIB registry,
do not deprecate it, add a new optional, printerLangMIMEType".
My position is and will be that the Printer MIB is closed and
moving forward on the standards track. I have not seen enough
justification to halt this process to add this new object.
Regards,
Lloyd
