Hi Ron,

I've been contemplating, in support of the Scanner MIB
work and any possible future Fax MIB, abstracting the
current IPP Notifications over SNMP a little bit and
changing the 'jmPrinterEvent' to be 'jmDeviceEvent'
(which could then serve for Scanner MIB and private
MIB events).  The PWG Job Monitoring MIB already
has 'JmJobServiceTypes' to express print, scan, fax-in,
fax-out, etc. in jobs and is therefore already abstracted
away from strictly print jobs.

I had hoped to issue the new I-D before the 10 March
deadline (Carl-Uno isn't that when I-Ds are cutoff'
before IETF Adelaide, Australia??), but I've got the
flu and a ton of other work, so probably not.

I copied the IPP WG on this note, so folks would know
what's happening as early as possible (before this
Wednesday's IPP WG Telecon).

Cheers,
- Ira McDonald

Ira,

So far there has not been any group review of your proposal
for SNMP Notifications.  The last two meetings had a very
full schedule with the new Set Operations and the other
notification methods.

I have volunteered to lead the discussion on this document
and hope to have a slot in the Tokyo meeting.

In the mean time I hope to do an extensive review of your
proposal.  As I stated previously, it looks like an excellent
base for SNMP notifications.  I do have some suggested
improvements which I believe can be made available by
the end of next week.  (I had hoped to complete this task
prior to the LA meeting, but other task seem to get in the
way.)  If we could at least have some discussions prior to
the Tokyo meeting, they could then be presented to the
group for additional feedback.

I do not feel that any changes need to be made to your
document for the IETF meeting.  From past experience,
there is not much feedback from these meetings unless
specific issues are contained in the presentation.  Also,
I have not seen any participation from SNMP experts in
the IPP discussions.
