The Job Monitoring MIB is ahead of IPP, so your concern that one
would hold up the other is not a problem.
Furthermore, if there are additional values that are added to, say IPP,
for printer resolution that didn't make Job Mon MIB, there is no
problem. These are type 2 enums that can be added to anytime and have
all the validity as if they were in the standard.
Our plan is to complete the next JMP draft this week and that will be the
one that we forward to IESG this month.
I also want to make sure that IPP people are happy with making
these 5 attribute values enums, instead of keywords. If any of them
change back to keywords, then the Job Monitoring MIB would want to
change them to be OCTET STRING, instead of Integer32 as well.
So its important to both JMP and IPP to reach agreement on these five
attributes and their data types.
