I do, again, apologize for not being able to finish what I started.  Since,
the last IETF, added responsibility and work schedules have not allowed me
to provide the right attention.

Dave Arneson is now our chassis "guru", and main contributor.

Despite our silence, and non-participation, we do firmly believe in
standardizing a chassis MIB.  We are committed and, as stated at the last
WG meeting, are willing to share implementation experience, etc.

We, Cabletron, do believe that such a MIB is required.  I would suggest
that we try to put together a new time-action-plan for the work.

(Due to scheduling conflicts I will not be able to attend the first
three days.)
