I have had some conversations with several individuals about baking-off.
I will work out the prioritization of bake-off contents and work on a test
to cover the content. However in my opinion the next bake-off should be
less dependent on scripted test suites. The reasoning behind this is that
IPP test suites should be used to test an implementation conformance to the
IPP specification. They should test all the bloody details and insure a
implementation. The bake-off however should be checking how IPP products
interact. I would rather leave the test suites development to organizations
will profit from the effort required.
We have 2 test suites currently available. They were made available with
understanding that anyone that develops additional scripts will post them.
yet to see any scripts developed by anyone other than the developers of the
I assume we can handle most of the Bake-Off 2 tests procedurally. If we
scripts developed who will be on the hook to develop and debug them before
