That's what I like about the network management community -- they are so chatty -- NOT!
I posted this message a few weeks ago and no discussion was generated. I know that many people are consumed with other aspects around SNMP right now and that is one possible reason for no response here.
Does anyone want to step up to the plate with any comments on the future direction of the EOS WG?
In addition, since SNMP over TCP was discussed on this list a couple of times, and, Jeurgen has posted that his SNMP over TCP document is being proposed to go to experimental RFC status, does anyone have any comments or problems with the movement of that document to experimental? The document can be found at:

Subject: EOS WG Status
As is obvious from the lack of activity on the mailing list there is not much going on in EOS right now. Here is a status of what is happening.
We have a 2 hour slot in Minneapolis (presently on Monday from 1-3).
A new revision of the bulk data draft will be published by the March 1 cutoff date. The changes to that draft will be discussed in Minneapolis. A WG last call on the document will happen shortly after Minneapolis if no significant issues are identified by that time.
A new revision of the capabilities draft with minor changes will be published by the March 1 cutoff date. The changes to that draft will be discussed in Minneapolis. A WG last call on the document will happen shortly after Minneapolis if no significant issues are identified by that time.
Subtree deletion has never had any support in the working group. As such I recommend that this work item be dropped. If anybody believes that this work item should continue then please post to the list.
The last two work items are OID compression/suppression and row operations. We have a draft for each of those and we have a reasonable amount of dissention as to the correct approach for these two topics. The drafts have both expired, although they both still appear on the IETF's EOS WG page. I am looking for opinions for the next steps on these pieces of work. I have heard a range of opinions and would like to see the discussion on the list.
Please post your comments on any or all of these items. I will try to distill the messages and present the results in Minneapolis.
