Re: review of snmpconf--pm-10

Hi David (H)

David thanks for the posting. As you know last call has closed and the 
document has been passed to the IESG. That said, we want to make sure that 
any issues that you feel have been missed get looked at again. 

David Partain and I would like for you to identify which of the 51 are of 
concern as soon as you can. We will take these and go over them again with 
Steve and either propose a change or explain why we think there should be 
no change.  If you could send us the 51 items by the end of the week, that 
would be  a big help.

We will do the review as quickly as possible. Based on the results we hope 
to be able to update the document with any clarifications without another 
last call. The clarifications will of course be sent to the list.


David and Jon
