    Hi folks,

    MANY THANKS to Jerry Thrasher for doing all this MS Word editing.

    Jerry's been after me recently to update the Port Monitor MIB, so
    that we can do a final review period and prototyping can proceed.

    Posted on the PWG FTP server in the PMP WG directories at:

    Summary of changes:

    (1) Please see Last Call issues (PMP-3 through PMP-7) in Appendix C.

    (2) Many of the body sections have been revised or rewritten for one
        or more of the PPM-1 through PPM-7 issues/resolutions (see the
        redlines and bluelines in the '...rev.pdf' version).

    (3) Several new body sections have been added, as needed.

    After discussion at this past Thurday's PWG Steering Committee
    telecon, we tentatively agreed that we will delay the Formal Vote
    on the Port Monitor MIB until _after_ the interoperability tests
    at the PWG face-to-face in July (hosted by Apple). That way, we
    can avoid two back-to-back Candidate Standard versions (on the
    assumption that prototyping and interoperability testing probably
    will find at least _one_ bug or the need for a clarification).

    Craig Whittle (Sharp Labs America) has volunteered to be our
    interoperability testing editor and will coordinate the logistics
    and availability of test tools with Microsoft and Apple (and any
    other OS vendors who wish to contribute).

    Many thanks to all the PWG members who have taken time to review
    and improve the Port Monitor MIB. Also special thanks to Bert
    Wijnen (IETF Ops & Mgmt Area Director) for his excellent comments.

    As of this LCRC release, there are no known outstanding issues.

    Please send comments based on page and section numbers in the
    'lcrc-pmpportmib10-20050512.pdf' version.
