Hi folks,                                      Monday (10 February 2003)

I've just sent a revised version of 'IANA Charset MIB' to the
Internet-Drafts editor and posted a copy on the PWG server in the
directory 'ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/pmp/drafts/' in the files:

    <draft-mcdonald-iana-charset-mib-02.txt> - IETF-style plaintext
    <draft-mcdonald-iana-charset-mib-02.htm> - HTML w/ live TOC
    <draft-mcdonald-iana-charset-mib-02.pdf> - PDF w/ live TOC

This IANA Charset MIB is required for compilation of the Printer MIB v2
<draft-ietf-printmib-mib-info-14.txt>, published separately.

This IANA Charset MIB was developed at the suggestion of Bert Wijnen.

Cheers,
- Ira McDonald (editor of IANA Charset MIB)

PS - This IANA Charset MIB is now ready for IETF 'last call'.

I-D Editor,                                    Monday (10 February 2003)

Please place this document in the Internet-Drafts repository named:

It replaces the previous draft named:

    <draft-mcdonald-iana-charset-mib-01.txt>

This document is required for compilation of the Printer MIB v2
<draft-ietf-printmib-mib-info-14.txt>, published separately.

Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) 
   for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
   This IANA Charset MIB is [intended to become] an IANA registry.  In
   particular, a single textual convention 'IANACharset' is defined that
   may be used to specify charset labels in MIB objects.  'IANACharset'
   was extracted from Printer MIB v2 (work-in-progress).  'IANACharset'
   was originally defined (and mis-named) as 'CodedCharSet' in Printer
   MIB v1 (RFC 1759).  A tool has been written in C, that may be used by
   IANA to regenerate this IANA Charset MIB, when future charsets are in
   accordance with the IANA Charset Registration Procedures (RFC 2978).

Thanks very much,
- Ira McDonald (editor of IANA Charset MIB)
