>https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-sweet-rfc2910bis/>>>>> Technical Summary
>> The 2910bis and 2911bis documents are making necessary updates to the Internet Printing
> Protocol that was produced by the IPP working group and published as RFCs 2910 and 2911
> in 2000. The updates bring the protocol up to date with what is currently deployed.
>> Working Group Summary
>> This is not a product of any WG.
>> Document Quality
>> After the IPP working group was closed down in 2000, further work on Internet printing moved
> out of the IETF and into the IEEE-ISTO's Printer Working Group (IPP WG). These documents
> represent the work of that group, which is where all the operators/implementors of IPP do
> their work (they are, basically, the ones who worked in the IETF IPP working group when it
> was active). The documents have consensus of that group, and the consensus and implementation
> are solid and broad.
>> The documents are being brought back into the IETF for last call and publication because
> they are updating (replacing) IETF Standards Track documents. There is no active work in the
> IETF on Internet printing now.
>> Barry Leiba is the document shepherd. Alexey Melnikov is the responsible Area Director.
