Hi Jay and fellow PWG members,

I agree that a show of public interest is valuable on a Finisher MIB,
but I assumed that since the PWG decided NOT to pursue the Finisher
sub-unit two years ago (reiterated in notes from others this morning),
that the interest remained low.

I thought Jeff might like to work with Xerox folks to come up with a
'prototype' submission to the PWG for consideration as a basis for
Finisher MIB development. The strong reliance of the PWG on direct
face-to-face meetings makes it hard or impossible for many interested
parties to participate (eg, Xerox would NEVER pay for my travel to a
PWG meeting, because I'm an independent consultant).

If others are interested in a 'simple' Finisher MIB (for desktop
products) or a 'big' Finisher MIB (for high-end products), PLEASE
state your interest.

I would suggest that it is in the best interests of the PWG
that any/all interested parties should post their interest
in a Finisher MIB directly to the PMP mailing list.

That way the public can gauge the interest accordingly.
