I have a .doc file for an Internet-Draft for a standard track IETF
document.  Does someone want to turn that into an IEEE-ISTO draft
standard?

Here is the start of it:

Internet Printing Protocol WG                             Robert Herriot

                     Internet Printing Protocol (IPP):
           The 'mailto' Delivery Method for Event Notifications

Status of this Memo

   This document is an Internet-Draft and is in full conformance with
   all provisions of Section 10 of [RFC2026].  Internet-Drafts are
   working documents of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), its
   areas, and its working groups.  Note that other groups may also
   distribute working documents as Internet-Drafts.

   Internet-Drafts are draft documents valid for a maximum of six months
   and may be updated, replaced, or obsoleted by other documents at any
   time.  It is inappropriate to use Internet-Drafts as reference
   material or to cite them other than as "work in progress".

Abstract

   This document describes an extension to the Internet Printing
   Protocol/1.0 (IPP) [RFC2566, RFC2565] and IPP/1.1 [RFC2911, RFC2910].
   This document specifies the 'mailto' Delivery Method for use with the
   "IPP Event Notifications and Subscriptions" specification [ipp-ntfy].
   When IPP Notification [ipp-ntfy] is supported, the Delivery Method
   defined in this document is one of the RECOMMENDED Delivery Methods
   for Printers to support.

   For this Delivery Method, when an Event occurs, the Printer
   immediately sends an Event Notification via an email message to the
   Notification Recipient specified in the Subscription Object.  The
   message body of the email consists of Human Consumable text that is
   not intended to be parsed by a machine.  The Notification Recipient
   receives the Event Notification in the same way as it receives any
   other email message.

Thanks,
Tom

Hi Mike,

Yes - notification by polling means ippget.

The lack of standards-track email notification is unfortunate,
because it's the ubiquitous proprietary notification method
supported by the majority of network printers.

Cheers,
- Ira
