What do we want to do with these items. On Items 1 and 5, Matt and
Bill started some discussion that do not see to reach any consensus
on any proposed wording changes. On Items 2, 3, and 4, are these
clarifications still required?

1. Top 25 Alert Conditions
Chuck Adams has submitted a proposed write-up.

2. RFC1213 references in Printer MIB
Ron Bergman will look at evolution of the interfaces group (RFC1573) and
provide a comparison to the Interfaces group of RFC1213 which our MIB is
based on.

3. Should PDF type be included?
Chuck Adams will make proposal to add type-2 enum for PDF.

4. Should the phone:, fax: and email: tags be used in non 8-bit environments?
non-English environments?
Current localization will be modified to say it should also apply to other
r/w octet strings. - Randy

5. Invalid MAX-ACCESS clause on prtAlertIndex [Ira McDonald 3/18/97]
Harry Lewis will address backward compatible issue with Ira and try to
get clarification. Sounds like SNMPv1 MANDATED prtAlertIndex as not
accessible and SNMPv2 MANDATES accessible-for-notify. Lack of backward
compatibility! This object is in var bind list for the trap, it,s still
not accessible where it,s defined in the MIB, so today,s products should
be ok. Perhaps this is just a documentation issue. - Harry, Ira.

For brevity sakes, I am listing the name of the person and the date and
subject of their e-mail raising the proposed change. With this information,
you should be able to find the proposed change and follow any discussion
regarding this change.
