    Hi Ron,

    Nope - none of us saw these comments from Juergen Schoenwaelder
    (SNMPv3 guru and the author of SNMP over TCP spec).

    We'll take a look at them.

    Other PWG folks, here are some more comments on Printer MIB v2.

    Did anyone not see this other than me?

    I will attempt to edit the draft with these changes and send out for review.
    Items 3, 6, and 8 will need some research, but I suspect these will be easy
    to resolve.

    Looks like we are getting some attention now!

    Ron.... I now see that you did not get copied on this email.
    You may have seen it via the other authors though?
    Some of it may also be duplicates of what Dave and I reported.

    May I assume we'll get (yet) another rev?
