Subject: x.500 survey review

Hi Everyone,
Here is a list of the people who responded to our survey.  As promised, the 
surveys are FTP-able from nic.lbl.gov (in the file disi/surveys - one big 

The next two steps are:

> 1. All DISI members will be requested to review the submissions.  They
>    will be offered via anonymous ftp at a site at LBL.  (Available
>    5/14, comments requested by 5/28).  Note that Russ will send a
>    message on the 14th confirming the availability of the drafts and 
>    advertising the ftp site.
> 2. Comments by DISI members will be collated by Russ and Ruth and sent
>    to the authors.  (By 5/31)

Please look at the VTT X.500 survey.  The "ATTACHEMENT" has some interesting 
information that should go into the survey itself.  There is also some general 
information that doesn't belong in the survey.

Some surveys are more complete than others ... does this matter?


P.S  There are a few surveys coming in ... I will make them available when 
they do.
