[This comment isn't devoted to this edition of the draft,
but to all previous editions too]

It seems to me, that the object dot1dStpPortEnable doesn't reflect a *port
as it is defined in "IEEE 802.1D-1998: Section"; rather it
correspondents to "Force port state" from Section
I propose to discuss an option to:
1) do this object "MAX-ACCESS  write-only"
2) set possible values as
        SYNTAX      INTEGER {
3) change REFERENCE: "IEEE 802.1D-1998: Section"

Yours faithfully, Alex

Internet-Drafts are also available by anonymous FTP. Login with the username
"anonymous" and a password of your e-mail address. After logging in,
type "cd internet-drafts" and then

A list of Internet-Drafts directories can be found in

Internet-Drafts can also be obtained by e-mail.

Send a message to:
In the body type:
	"FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-bridge-bridgemib-smiv2-03.txt".

NOTE:	The mail server at can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
