What is the process for closing open issues?
The chair of the working group will declare status of issues once he/she determines rough concensus has been reached.

Requirements Issues were reviewed.

Item #4 Should print-file be changed to send-file? or is there something else going on here?

Model subgroup issues review:

#14 Should IPP document abstracts list all associated documents so reader knows to retrieve other necessary documents? (sure, why not, closed)
