IANA MIB modules and COPYRIGHT
The IESG has reached consensus w.r.t. IANA maintained MIB
Modules as follows:
In the IESG meeting of 2003, Feb 20th,
The IESG discussed if new IANA-maintained MIB modules
should be published as (part of) an RFC. The consensus
is that the initial version indeed is to be in an RFC.
The version in that RFC MUST make sure that some a
statement is made that the authoritative version of
the IANA-maintained MIB module is at the IANA web pages.
In the IESG meeting of 2003, April 3rd,
The IESG, after consultation with IANA, reached consensus
on a policy for copyright statements in IANA maintained
The web page pointed to below will be created in the next few days.
I will work with IANA to update their current IANA maintained MIB
modules over the next few weeks.
