            MIB Transfer from the IETF to the IEEE 802.3 WG

Abstract

   This document records the transfer of responsibility for the
   Ethernet-related MIB modules DOT3-OAM-MIB, SNMP-REPEATER-MIB,
   POWER-ETHERNET-MIB, DOT3-EPON-MIB, EtherLike-MIB, EFM-CU-MIB,
   ETHER-WIS, and MAU-MIB from the IETF to the IEEE 802.3 Working Group
   (WG).  This document also describes the procedures associated with
   the transfer in a similar way to how RFC 4663 records the transfer of
   the IETF Bridge MIB work to the IEEE 802.1 WG.

1.  Introduction

   [RFC4663], published in September 2006, described a plan for
   transferring responsibility for four MIB modules related to bridges
   from the IETF to IEEE 802.1.  Some years later, responsibility for
   eight more MIB modules was transferred from the IETF Ethernet
   Interfaces and Hub MIB (hubmib) WG to the IEEE 802.3 WG.  The MIB
   modules concerned are tabulated below (Section 2).  [RFC4663] clearly
   enunciates the motivation for both transfers and also provides an
   introduction to IEEE standardization procedures.  The discussions of
   those topics will not be repeated here.

   The IEEE version of this second lot of transferred MIB modules was
   published as 802.3.1-2011 in February 2011.  The IEEE 802.3.1
   specification was subsequently updated.  The latest version, IEEE
   802.3.1-2013 [IEEE802.3.1-2013], is the basis for this document.

2.  IETF and Corresponding IEEE 802.3 MIB Modules

   This section tabulates the MIB modules that were transferred to IEEE
   802.3, identifying the IETF source document, the corresponding clause
   of [IEEE802.3.1-2013], and the location of the MIB itself in ASCII
   format.
