    Hi folks,

    RFC 2790 - Host Resources MIB v2 (March 2000)
    - IETF Draft Standard status

    This was posted last week (14 March 2000) but got past
    me until it showed up in the RFC Index today.

    So now it's time to get on with Printer MIB v2.

    I urge that we fold the text of Finisher MIB into the
    Printer MIB v2 text (after all it completes the model
    in original Printer MIB, RFC 1759, March 1995) and
    NOT publish Finisher MIB as a separate RFC.

    I also urge that we press on as quickly as possible
    with publishing a definitive text for Printer MIB v2
    (with the approved additions from July 1999 for new
    generic alerts and 'chIPP' specification) and move it
    to PMP WG last call and send it onward for IESG last
    call. More than one vendor has already shipped a
    product with Printer MIB v2 new objects implemented.

    Remember that since the bar is now *very* high for
    advancement to Draft Standard, the Printer MIB v2
    MUST be published at Proposed Standard and convincing
    proof of interoperable implementations of EVERY object
    and object group must be presented to the IESG and
    publicly posted before we can request movement to
    Draft Standard status.

    Cheers,
