Lloyd and Chris,

In earlier messages I have requested the localization changes requested =
by Ira McDonald not be put in the Printer MIB. The main reason for not =
putting the change in the document is the lack of time to make sure we =
have the correct solution. The proposal has been changed very recently =
with the addition of the fourth textual convention, showing that it is =
still evolving. Additionally, Ira has proposed another solution in his =
6-26 email message.

During the recent PWG meeting, there were several discussions about the =
addition of the localization changes to the 6-25-97 version of the =
Printer MIB. A clear majority of those interested in the subject felt =
that the changes should not be in the document. I encourage people to =
post their concerns and/or support to the mail reflector.

A general concern that I voiced was the problem of document turmoil when =
making changes at the last minute. Then, as if to prove my point, I =
found that pmib-062797.txt has the console localization object defined =
twice (see prtConsoleLocalization and prtGeneralConsoleLocalization).=20

We have already missed one deadline and the new deadline is now =
endangered by the addition of these localization changes. Please back =
out the changes and let's get the Printer MIB completed.
