Subject: IPP> PSX - Posted new draft of IPP PSX (23 Sept 2006)

Hi folks,                                   Saturday (23 September 2006)

I've just posted a second draft of the PWG IPP Printer State Extensions
(PSX) specification on the PWG FTP server at:

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/ipp/wd/wd-ippstate10-20060923.htm
    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/ipp/wd/wd-ippstate10-20060923.pdf

This draft is a major rewrite to capture the recent IPP WG concensus on
design alternatives:

(a) New values for the "printer-state-reasons" attribute for device
    alerts already defined in the 'PrtAlertCodeTC' textual convention;

(b) New values for both the "printer-state-reasons" attribute and the
    'PrtAlertCodeTC' textual convention for finishing subunit alerts;

(c) New attribute "printer-alert (1setOf octetString(MAX))" - to encode
    all the machine-readable columnar objects from 'prtAlertTable';

(d) New attribute "printer-alert-description (1setOf text(MAX))" - to
    encode the localized 'prtAlertDescription' columnar object.

For immediate review, comment on the IPP WG mailing list (ipp at pwg.org),
and discussion at next IPP WG Telecon on Thursday 28 September 11am EDT.

Cheers,
- Ira
