Hi Carl-Uno,

Re addressing AD comments on the IPP URL spec, please see the following
excerpted change log from my release note of the RFC-ready draft-04.

    <draft-ietf-ipp-url-scheme-04.txt> (10 January 2002)

I'm sorry I can't find any copy of a note from Ned with specific comments
on the IPP URL spec (i.e., the previous April 2001 version) during the
IESG last call in December 2001.

- Ira

Appendix X - Change History

   [To be deleted before RFC publication]

   10 January 2002 - draft-ietf-ipp-url-scheme-04.txt
   - final edits after IESG 'last call' comments;
   - revised all titles in sections 4.x to remove redundant prefix of
     'IPP URL Scheme', for readability;
   - revised 'Abstract', section 1 'Introduction', section 4.1
     'Applicability and Intended Usage', section 4.5 'Syntax in ABNF',
     and section 6 'IANA Considerations', to explicitly state that the
     "ipp" URL scheme is intended for IANA registration in the IETF URL
     scheme tree;
   - revised section 4.5 'Syntax in ABNF', to delete references to
     unused ABNF components from [RFC2396];
   - revised section 11 'Authors' Addresses', to update contact info for
     both editors and to add the IPP Web page and mailing list
     subscription info;
   - moved 'Appendix X - Change History' to back of document, to
     facilitate final edits for RFC publication (including deletion of
     change history);

Subject: IPP> Short Notes from IETF 53


I am back after the IETF 53 meeting. A few personal observations until you
get the better notes from Lee later:

1) The IETF management wants to keep the riff-raff out and are selecting
meeting places that are unattractive, like Minneapolis in March. Hence less
than 1,500 people this time, which probably means that they will have to
raise the conference price further (from $425 this time) when they go to
Yokohama in July :-(

2) I was obviously checking with people about job chances, but it seems that
almost no companies are hiring at present, unless you can program in C++ and
Java and don't want too much salary.

3) We had a total of 5 people coming to the IPP meeting. Fortunately that
included my note taker Lee Farrell, our Area Director Ned Freed, and one of
the chairs from the IETF FAX WG Claudio Allocchio, so we got a few things

4) Remaining tasks before we can fold up the WG:
	a) Respond to IESG comments on Notifications, including selecting
delivery method as mandatory.
	b) Dig out earlier AD comments on the IPP URL draft, to check if
they were
	c) Get our final Implementer's Guide version out.

5) All IPP WG draft must be published as RFCs (or abandoned) before we can
close the WG, but the chances now look pretty good unless WE start dragging
our feet.

I include a picture from the IPP Meeting as attachment.
