I sent this message out Friday and again on Saturday, but did not see it
arrive, so I'm sending it again tonight (Sunday).

>>>1.1 Changes made from the July 1, 1998 to the December 10,
>The following changes made from the July 1, 1998 to make the
>December 10, 1998 version:
>1. Clarified the terminology so that an "event" doesn't
>necessarily mean that a notification report is delivered.
>2. Removed many of the job and printer attributes for
>being sent in a notification event report, so that we can get
>agreement on a basic set of notification content. Only
>attributes really needs are included, including what may be
>needed for FAX. Changed the names of the event groups by
>adding the suffix '-basic' to indicate that these event groups
>return only basic information. Additional event groups can be
>registered in order to get more attributes as needed for
>accounting and more detailed job monitoring purposes.
>3. Deleted the "job-progress" event group. We can bring
>it back when we agree to all of the extra attributes. Its not
>very useful with only the basic attributes.
>4. The printer events are indicted using the
>"printer-state-reasons" values, instead of the Printer MIB
>alert codes. Since most of the Printer MIB alert codes,
>except for the generic ones, have equivalent IPP keyword
>reason values, this should be a problem and makes IPP more
>readably implemented in a server that doesn't have the Printer MIB.
>5. Added the "job-last-event" job description attribute to
>give the job event some persistence.
>6. Changed the job's "time-at-event (integer)" to
>"job-last-date-time-of-event (dateTime)" to give an absolute
>date and time, in case events are being relayed back through
>multiple servers, such as in FAX. Also made it a Job
>Description attribute to give it persistence.
>7. Changed the printer's "time-at-event(integer)" to
>"printer-last-date-time-of-event(dateTime)" to give an
>absolute date and time, in case events are being relayed back
>through multiple servers, such as in FAX. Also made it a
>Printer Description attribute to give it persistence.
>8. Added the IPP/1.0 "printer-is-accepting-jobs" to the
>event report, since changes in its value are really device
>9. Added the complete semantics for each job event under the
>"last-job-event" Job Description attribute.
