Subject: RE: [wsdm] Terminology in the requirements

Title: Message
Hi Igor,
"managed object" is terminology from a logical model for manageability. Your proposed terminology is more consistent with a conceptual model which I believe is the current level of agreement for this group.
So +1 on the proposed phrasing.
However, in general -1 on excessive polishing of this document. Its not a contract and at some point we have to move on and live with it - warts and all

Subject: [wsdm] Terminology in the requirements

We have a problem in agreeing to the requirements that state "managed object MUST expose <whatever>". It prescribes certain way of doing management. These requirements are on the "The software component representing or part of the manageable resource responsible for interacting with the manager is referred to as the managed object in this document. Traditionally, such software is also known as agent."

We do not want to be limited by defining requirements on management using agents as suggested.

We propose to use more generic phrasing around ALL of such requirements. For example, We propose to phrase it as follows "<whatever> MUST be provided for a manageable resource". This phrase says WHAT instead of implying HOW.

PS. By "we" here I mean CA. And this is a violent objection :).
