I consider anything that is published to these sort of "open" discussion
lists to be free game. The audience subscribing to the ietf-fax list is
probably quite similar in make-up to the ipp list. The ipp list is quite
new, and certainly I would hope that the "charter" description would
undergo further discussion and refinement. An important note is that the
discussion of the scope is most important to get the various groups working
on material that is not overlapping in scope, and the work makes sense.

I am concerned because the ietf-fax group is working in one direction and
the ipp group seems to be working toward another. Indeed, the desired end
result for both is quite similar. Many of the items in the charter overlap
with those that are stated in the ietf-fax proposal. When I see things like
this, I usually worry that things are being done for political rather than
technical purposes.

Yes, I like New Orleans. But I just finished a big conference and a trip to
Japan. So my family was happy to have me here at home for a while. I hope
this work is open to review in written form...
