All, 

This is the second and final working group Last Call for the 
"Internet Printing Protocol/1.1 - Model and Semantics" and the 
"Internet Printing Protocol/1.1 - Encoding and Transport".  
Versions of these documents now appear in the Internet
Draft directory as <draft-ietf-ipp-model-v11-02.txt> and
<draft-ietf-ipp-protocol-v11-01.txt>.  

PDF and Word versions of the drafts are also posted at the ietf-ipp web
site:  

          ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/ipp/

The Last Call notice follows:     

	This is a formal request for final comments within the IETF IPP
working group for two documents. The  documents are "Internet Printing
Protocol/1.1 - Model and Semantics" and the "Internet Printing Protocol/1.1
- Encoding and Transport" which are being proposed for forwarding on to the
IESG for consideration as Standards Track RFCs.  This is a working group
product, which has been thoroughly discussed since mid 1998. 

The document has undergone considerable review and revisions during the past
month and I believe that we now have working group consensus on its
adequacy.

The purpose of a working group Last Call is in the style of "speak now or
forever hold your peace" in case there are fundamental objections which have
not gotten previous or adequate discussion, or minor errors which need
correction.  

Last Calls are for a minimum of 2 weeks. As this is the second working 
group Last Call for these documents, the period for working group 
comments will close on Friday May 28, 1999 (US Pacific time reference).

The relevant documents are:

	Title		: Internet Printing Protocol/1.1: Model and
Semantics
	Author(s)	: P. Powell, R. de Bry, T. Hastings, R. Herriot, S.
Isaacson
	Filename	: draft-ietf-ipp-model-v11-02.txt
	Pages		: 174
	Date		: 11-May-99
	
This document is one of a set of documents, which together describe all
aspects of a new Internet Printing Protocol (IPP).  IPP is an
application level protocol that can be used for distributed printing
using Internet tools and technologies.  This document describes a
simplified model consisting of abstract objects, their attributes, and
their operations that is independent of encoding and transport.  The
model consists of a Printer and a Job object.  A Job optionally supports
multiple documents.  IPP 1.1 semantics allow end-users and operators to
query printer capabilities, submit print jobs, inquire about the status
of print jobs and printers, cancel, hold, release, and restart print
jobs.  IPP 1.1 semantics allow operators to pause, resume, and purge
(jobs from) Printer objects.  This document also addresses security,
internationalization, and directory issues.

	Title		: Internet Printing Protocol/1.1: Encoding and
Transport
	Author(s)	: R. Turner, R. Herriot, J. Wenn, S. Butler, P.
Moore
	Filename	: draft-ietf-ipp-protocol-v11-01.txt
	Pages		: 35
	Date		: 11-May-99
	
This document is one of a set of documents, which together describe all
aspects of a new Internet Printing Protocol (IPP). IPP is an application
level protocol that can be used for distributed printing using Internet
tools and technologies. This document defines the rules for encoding IPP
operations and IPP attributes into a new Internet mime media type called
'application/ipp'.  This document also defines the rules for
transporting over HTTP a message body whose Content-Type is
'application/ipp'. This document defines a new scheme named 'ipp' for
identifying IPP printers and jobs. Finally, this document defines rules
for supporting IPP/1.0 Clients and Printers.

Internet-Drafts are also available by anonymous FTP. Login with the username
"anonymous" and a password of your e-mail address. After logging in,
type "cd internet-drafts" and then
      "get draft-ietf-ipp-model-v11-02.txt"
	"get draft-ietf-ipp-protocol-v11-01.txt".

A list of Internet-Drafts directories can be found in

or ftp://ftp.ietf.org/ietf/1shadow-sites.txt

Internet-Drafts can also be obtained by e-mail.

Send a message to:
	mailserv at ietf.org.
In the body type:
	"FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ipp-protocol-v11-00.txt".
	
NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
