>>Bob and I are proposing a drastically reduced set of printer states:
unknown, idle, processing (Bob prefers: printing), and mixed.
>>The printer-state-reasons attribute indicates:
>> (1) orthogonical states, such as printer disabled from accepting Print
> and printer paused (by operator) so maps cleanly to ISO DPA
> (2) printer conditions (binary change events from the Printer MIB).
>>I've copied the pmp list as well, to see if they agree with the idea
>of how to represent all of the Printer MIB binary change events, both
>critical and warning as values of the Printer's printer-state-reasons
>>Please send comments to the ipp list with "MOD -" as the first 5 characters
