    Hi folks,

    My co-editor, Mark Bakke, has just succeeded in readably diagramming
    the relationships between all of the object groups in the SLP MIB
    (which can be complex).

    I stored a copy in PDF on the PWG Anonymous FTP server at:

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/ipp/new_SLP/slp-mib-uml-model-00.pdf

    Mark Bakke gave me all the hard problems of structure already solved in
    his original sketch in UML. And the optimizations to allow simpler
    implementations for most systems in his subsequent feedback.

    Jim Muchow - you were right about those SEQUENCE clauses. I've got
    a zillion 'smilint' errors to correct - all the refined types in the
    SEQUENCE clauses. New version pretty soon, but not before the IETF
    cutoff in mid-November, I don't think.

    Cheers,
    - Ira McDonald (co-editor of SLP MIB)

    Hi,

    Oops - I reversed the order of the 'srvloc' to 'svrloc' first try for
    the mailing list. My apolgies for the repeat posting to the IPP list,
    but I wanted you people to see the correct address for the SLP Project
    (corrected in the note below).

    Hi folks, Thursday (1 November 2001)

    I've just sent a first draft of 'Definitions of Managed Objects for
    Service Location Protocol (SLP MIB)' to the Internet-Drafts editor and
    posted a copy on the Printer Working Group (PWG) Anonymous FTP server in
    the directory 'ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/ipp/new_SLP/' in the file:

        <draft-mcdonald-svrloc-mib-00.txt> (November 2001) - full I-D
        <draft-mcdonald-svrloc-mib-00.mib> (November 2001) - SMIv2 MIB

    This draft SLP MIB compiles cleanly with Epilogue Emissary and SMICng.
    This draft SLP MIB was developed as part of the SLP Project's efforts to
    advance SLPv2 (RFC 2608) from Proposed Standard to Draft Standard on the
    Internet 'standards track'.

    The editors would like to thank: Pete St. Pierre (Sun) for his original
    work on an SLP MIB in 1997; Erik Guttman (Sun) for compiling the
    requirements for this SLP MIB for SLPv2; and Jim Muchow (Cisco) for
    his helpful comments on the ASN.1 structure and compliance macros
    in this SLP MIB.

    Thanks to my co-editor Mark Bakke (Cisco) for first doing all the "heavy
    lifting" by laying out his excellent UML model for the SLP MIB.

    Cheers,
    - Ira McDonald (co-editor of SLP MIB)

    PS - Please note that both the IETF IPP WG and SLP Project mailing lists
    are subscribers-only. Please send comments directly to the editors
    (Mark and me) and we'll cross post as required. Thanks.

    I-D Editor, Thursday (1 November 2001)

    Please place this independent submission in the Internet-Drafts
    repository named:

        <draft-mcdonald-svrloc-mib-00.txt> (November 2001)

    Abstract

       This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
       for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
       In particular, it defines as set of managed objects that support
       monitoring and configuration of Service Location Protocol Version 2
       (SLPv2) [RFC2608] directory agents (DAs), service agents (SAs), and
       user agents (UAs).

    Please send the I-D announcement to the editors (above), because the
    SLP Project at Source Forge <srvloc-discuss@lists.sourceforge.net> is a
    subscribers-only mailing list.

    Thanks very much,
    - Ira McDonald (co-editor of SLP MIB)
