Folks,

The May 3 deadline is approaching quickly.  Please send 
your survey responses to Russ and me by that date.

One of the DISI members suggested that statements be made
in the COMPLETENESS session in reference to Section 9 of
X.519.  Please do so.  We will contact those of you who 
have already returned your survey input if more information
is needed. 

As Russ Wright is on vacation until May 6, please refer 
any questions to me.

		X.500 Implementation Survey

Goal Of This Survey:

To gather information regarding currently available implementations of
X.500 including products, public domain and openly available
offerings.

The Directory Information Services (pilot) Infrastructure (DISI)
working group of IETF will produce an RFC/FYI that identifies existing
implementations of the X.500 standard.  This RFC/FYI will provide
information to the Internet community regarding the availability and
capability of X.500 implementations.  It will not specify a standard,
list IAB policy, or list IAB recommendations.  It will be similar in
intent, nature, and scope to the Network Management Tools Catalog (RFC
1147/FYI 2).

Instructions For Completing This Survey:

If you are an X.500 implementor or product representative, please
fill-out this survey using one form per application suite or named
application.  Return completed forms by May 3, 1991 to:

	Ruth Lang  (rlang@nisc.sri.com)
	Russ Wright (wright@lbl.gov)

Questions regarding how to complete the survey may also be sent to
either Ruth Lang or Russ Wright.

We apologize for the duplicates received by those of you who are on
some or all of the mailing list recipients of this message.  Please
feel free to pass this survey form on to others who may have something
to contribute but are not on any of the lists above. The editors and
the DISI working group thank you for your participation!
