FYI - the LDAP Printer Schema (republished as an 'individual contribution',
after being _withdrawn_ as an IETF IPP WG product last month) has just
been forwarded to the RFC Editor for publication as an Informational RFC.
According to the Internet Standards Process (RFC 2026), the RFC Editor
will request that the IESG issue an Internet 'last-call' on this document
and it will then go to the back of the queue for RFC publication (all
'standards track' documents have higher precedence than Informational
As noted earlier, the technical content of this 'individual contribution'
is identical to the last IETF IPP WG draft.

Please publish the following document as an Informational RFC:
"LDAP Schema for Printer Services", 15 January 2002
This document fully conforms to RFC 2223 "Instructions to RFC Authors"
and to the "Recent and Proposed RFC Editorial Policy Changes" on the
RFC Editor web page.
As this document is Informational, there are NO normative references.
This document describes an LDAP printer schema developed several years
ago and now shipping in the printer industry.
The Abstract is as follows:
This document provides information for the Internet community. It
does not specify an Internet standard of any kind. This document
defines an LDAP schema, object classes and attributes, for printers
and printer services, for use with directories that support
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAPv3) [RFC2251]. This
document is based on the printer attributes listed in Appendix E of
Internet Printing Protocol (IPP/1.1) [RFC2911], the Service Location
Protocol (SLPv2) [RFC2608] 'service:printer:' template defined in
[SLPPRT], and the mapping between SLP service advertisements and LDAP
descriptions of services defined in [RFC2926].
Thanks very much,
