[802SEC] FW: Fwd: IEEE 802.11 SNMP MIB?

Please read the email thread, below.  It asks if there is a policy as to how
MIBs are defined.  I don't know the answer to this.  What is the position of
802?  Is there one?

Tom and Bob,

The 1997 version of 802.11 specified the MIB according to OSI rules, but
Annex D was removed prior to paper publication. Subsequent versions of
802.11 (802.11-1999 and supplements) are according to SNMP.  So the short
answer to your question is yes.

I have CC'd your question to Bob O'Hara, who is a member of the 802
executive committee and the editor of the 802.11 standard. He is an expert
on the 802.11 MIB and higher level 802 architecture, and will be able to
provide a more detailed explanation and history.
