very welcome on the topic below.  To subscribe to the WIMS
WG mailing list (necessary to send comments to the list),

The PWG WIMS (Web-based Imaging Management Service)
Working Group has a joint project with the DMTF CIM 
(Core Information Model) to update and extend the
printing classes in CIM for more complete coverage
of the properties defined in the IETF Printer MIB v2
(RFC 3805) and IETF IPP/1.1 (RFC 2911).

The WIMS-CIM project has concensus on the Printer MIB 
properties for inclusion in CIM, in the directory:


in the files:

  - the list of SNMP objects and comments

  - the rationale behind our choices

Since WS-Mgmt (now a DMTF project) and OASIS WSDM
both plan to use the CIM classes as the basis of all
future standard Web Services management, CIM printing
classes will eventually be the ONLY method of reading
these Printer MIB properties (SNMP is now very often 
disabled in enterprise networks, for security reasons).

Please join us in person or by teleconference at the 
PWG WIMS WG session in Lexington:

  Friday 27 October - 8:30-10:45am US EDT
