    Hi,

    I cast my votes as follows:

    a) over Email - 2
    b) over IPP - 1
    c) over INDP - 1
    d) over SNMP - 0

    That was very hard - I still want to see an IPP in-band method
    - but I believe that Email is a practical near-term answer for
    most implementors and can be configured by administrators to be
    useful in many cases.

    Note that, at today's IPP telecon, Hugo Parra made the point
    that Novell has been very frustrated by customers who did
    NOT configure their email trouble tickets, job notifications, etc.

    Hugo also made the point that reliability is not a salient feature
    of Email notifications - this will be an issue for QualDocs.

    Cheers,

    July 7

    All,

    The IETF does not do voting, but we can ask people to allocate weights to
    their favorite method. From the result I hope to get a picture of whether we
    have a clear "rough consensus" favorite, or if we should just avoid trying
    to make any particular notification delivery method the "required" or
    "mandated" one.

    So let the weightings begin!

    Here are the rules:

    1) We have 4 candidate notification delivery methods, briefly described as:

     a) over email
     b) over IPP (a.k.a. intelligent polling)
     c) over INDP (new IPP-like protocol, but works in the opposite direction)
     d) over SNMP

    2) You have a total of maximum 4 weight points to allocate between the 4
    methods above.

     a) You can put all your 4 points on one favorite and leave the other three
    with 0 each. (the 'all eggs in one basket' option)
     b) If you don't really mind which method, you can give 1 point to each of
    the methods. (the 'chicken' option)
     c) You can allocate your 4 points somewhere between the two extreme cases
    above. (the 'diplomatic' options)
     d) If you don't want to make ANY of the methods "required" or "mandated",
    put a 0 for ALL four methods! (the 'don't even try it' option)

    If you still haven't understood the rules, please read the above text 3 more
    times, before you make a fool of yourself....., or of me for not being clear
    enough ;-{

    So please collect your wits and send your weights to the IPP DL no later
    than next Friday July 7!

    Have fun.... and remember that if you do not participate you cannot win!
