RE: Error Feedback


This post bounced this morning since I got removed
from the mailing list at some point.

A big thanks to Randy Bush for helping debug the
situation ...

Currently no one is editing RFC1905. I started to capture
some of these things in the extended protocol MIB ID, and
if there is interest, I can release an update to the ID.

I do agree that if we are improving error messages, we want
to avoid human-only readable objects like display strings.
Enumerated integers that could optionally be mapped to 
human-readable text seem to be the best way to improve error

The accessible-for-response idea seems too expensive when
looking at current protocol operations. It might fare
better if applied specifically to one of the new PDUs,
like simplified sets.

As per my 8/29/1 email, A more friendly approach would be:
