I would expect Jay or Dave to chime in here because I think they are th=
e ones
who finally realized the great benefit to knowing something about the t=
ime
related to events. My recollection is that we simply realized timing of=
events
is essential information and should not be considered optional. The tim=
e is in
TICKS or something related to sysUpTime, so there's no extra burden in =
terms of
time keeping or having to put a Timex (or Rolex) in the machine.

Subject: PMP> Justification for prtAlertTime and prtAlertTimeGroup ch

I am finally getting around to gathering up the justifications
for the changes between RFC1759 and the new Printer MIB. I have
been able to collect the justification for all changes except
for one. The change that I can not find any justification for
is the move of prtAlertTime from the prtAlertTimeGroup to the
prtAlertTableGroup and the subsequent deprecation of the
prtAlertTimeGroup. I have searched both the PMP and PWG mail
archives and while I can find mail that discusses the change,
I can not find any mail that says why the change was made or
why the change was required.
Help?
