The .pdf files are now fixed in the jmp/contribution/


They had been truncated:

The ones in ftp::/ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/ipp/new_MOD/
were ok as posted


Sorry for the problems.

>This document is the updated IPP "job-state" and "job-state-reasons"

>JOINT IPP/JMP ISSUE - Should we go back to the name 'held', instead of

>The IPP protocol has a "job-hold-until", so having the name of the state be

> Summary of IPP and JMP job state and job state reasons agreements
>------------------------------------------------------------------

>Here is the summary of the job state and job state reasons agreements:
>
>1. In JMP remove the 'printing' state.
>
>2. Rename the JMP 'held' state to 'pending-stopped' and rename the JMP state
>'needsAttention' to 'processingStopped'.
>
>3. In both IPP and JMP add the 'aborted' state and make it a final state.
>
>4. In both IPP and JMP remove the 'aborted-by-system' job-state-reason, 
>since the new 'aborted' state says it all.
>
>5. In IPP replace the 'terminating' state with the 'canceled' and 'aborted'
>states and make 'canceled' and 'aborted' final states, like the
>JMP 'canceled' and 'completed' states.
>
>6. Since the pending-stopped state has been added, JMP no longer needs a
>generic jobHeld job state reason.
>
>
>So the simplified state transition diagram for IPP and JMP was agreed to be:

>The following figure shows the normal job state transitions.  Other
>transitions are unlikely, but are not forbidden.
