On Friday May 14, the final review period for the DECNet Phase IV MIB
expired.  During that time, there were no requests posted to this list
for changes to the existing MIB beyond those we have already discussed. 

I have observed a couple of comments for additions for Token Ring.
Given the scope of that project, I am recommending that effort be taken
up separately, and if a need for a standard set of DECNet Objects over
token ring is established, that a group be chartered for that purpose.

My next step will be to confirm consensus on our changes through a
series of notes that I will send out over the next few days.  I expect
that this will be a formality since we have all discussed each of them
in great detail in the past.

After this process is complete I will post a revised draft according the
schedule I posted earlier.

I have started to receive implementation feedback and I have already
been informed me that there is at least one implementation of the
counters group.  Our schedule requires that we post results from our
survey of implementation and operational experience during June.  I
request that each person on the mailing list complete the form below
mail it to me so that I may tabulate the results.  If you wish your
information to be held privately, I will not include your name in the
report to the IESG (I think everybody would want their company name
