Technical Summary:

        This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
        for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
        In particular, it defines objects for managing IPv6 over Low-Power
        Wireless Personal Area Networks (6LoWPANs).

Working Group Summary:

        There were no particular points of contention in the WG process, and the
        consensus behind publication of this document as a Standards Track RFC
        appears solid.

Document Quality:

        There is at least one implementation of the specification using SNMP to 
        read counters of a constrained device using the 6lowpan adaptation layer.
        This implementation has been demonstrated at the plugfest of IETF90.
        There have been good discussions of the document among the WG participants,
        in general.

        There have been no specific MIB doctor, Media Type or other expert reviews
        done. The main editor is himself a MIB doctor.

Personnel:

        The Document Shepherd is Ulrich Herberg.
        The Responsible Area Director is Brian Haberman.
