I like option 3. Ira has also reminded us that some new interop testing=
may be
required to go to Draft. Can we get an "official" reading on this?

Subject: PMP> Possible change in direction for Printer MIB

Don conveyed that some members of the Printer MIB working group at
the Toronto PWG meeting expressed a desire to take the current draft
to Proposed status instead of continuing to wait on Draft status.
I wanted to open up this line of discussion for the entire working
group.

Chris and I are continuing to work on moving the Printer MIB forward to=

Draft status. The progress was been extremely slow. The HR MIB chairman=

has been distracted for several reasons and was not made much progress
on moving the HR MIB forward. Last week he sent a note telling us that
most of his distractions are behind him with a plan to move forward.
One course of action could be to take the current draft to Proposed
and then attempt to take the current draft to Draft after the HR MIB
goes to Draft.

The options are (as far as I know):
1. Continue on current course taking new Printer MIB to Draft.
2. Take current draft to Proposed and leave it there.
3. Take current draft to Proposed and then to Draft after HR
MIB goes to Draft.

I would like to hear opinions from the rest of the working
group.
