The PWG Steering Committee has approved two new related
(but independent) projects in the PWG MIBs WG:

(1) MFP Alerts (and SNMP Traps) extension to Printer MIB v2
     (a) new enumerations for the PrtAlertGroupTC (for scanner)
     (b) new enumerations for the PrtAlertCodeTC (if needed)
     - Ron Bergman, editor
     - when registered with IANA, these new enumerations will
       allow immediate alerts (including description and severity)
       for subunits of other "devices" in an MFP (scanner, etc.).

(2) Imaging System MIB that corresponds to WIMS object model
     (a) Groups - System, Service, Device (optional), and Subunits
     (b) Simple content - state, description, links to HR and Prt MIBs
     - Ira McDonald, editor

A draft of the IS MIB is posted at:


When the IS MIB is finished, the group references in prtAlertTable
will resolve to actual state/state-message/description variables.
