Here are the actions and responses to Carl-Uno's suggestions
for the Requirements document....




>Not to keep you in suspense any longer, here are a number of things that I

document:
>Page 6:

>Users want to limit the scope of their search when locating a printer:

>- include only a particular domain
>- exclude specified domains
>
>We have no Directory or Printer attributes defined to support this.


"Outside the scope" statement added;
>Page 13:
>
>Printer discovery:
>- cost per page to print [also in several other places]
>- maximum job size (spool size)
>- payment required for printing
>- printer supports compression
>
>We have no Directory or Printer attributes to support this.


"Outside the scope" statement added


>Page 15:
>
>We talk about "marking technology" here [and in various other places].

>We have "printer description" which might include this in text form, but
no

Changed to "- accessible by the client"
>Page 24:
>
>Select a printer based on:
>- is a public printer (accessible from outside a firewall)

>We have no explicit Directory or Printer attribute to support this. The

but

Deleted "accessible from outside a firewall"


>Page 26:
>
>Printer discovery:
>
>- Is in Downtown Boulder
>- Give me the Printer's public key
>
>Although we have an unstructured Printer location attribute, is it likely
>that we can do this kind of match?
>
>We do not have a Directory attribute for the Printer's public key.


Change "Downtown Boulder" to just Boulder Colorado
Deleted "Give me the Printer's public key"
>Page 51:
>
>Searching for printers:
>
>- takes my VISA card
>- gives me a rough cost per page
>
>We have a generic text Printer attribute for printer description, but can
>you request and search on it?
>
>We have no Directory or Printer attribute to support this.


Removed
