Re: snmpconf To Do list items

Harrie, Bert, Hongal:

How would it be if we put a number of examples in the BCP in the section
that deals with policy. We could use the script as an example of how to
write a concise script for a fairly complicated system.

There are two a couple of other examples that should go in there as
well. We could reference the BCP in the other documents in such a way
that it is not a normative reference but something people could look
into if they wanted.

Is this OK?
