Note that this message is about a PWG draft on IPP (not part of the IETF IPP
Late last year it was agreed with the IETF Application Area Directors that
IPP extensions that have no major impact on the overall IPP model and
protocol encoding could be done separately by the PWG.
The relevant draft document is: Internet Printing Protocol/1.0 & 1.1:
Override Attributes for Documents and Pages, Version Sept 15, 2000
This draft is the first PWG produced IPP document to come up for Last Call.
The first draft of this document was introduced to the PWG in December 1999.
The document is intended to be published as an IEEE-ISTO PWG Standard
document as an extension to the RFC2911 from the IETF.
The purpose of a Last Call is to give everybody a last chance to look over
the draft text and determine whether they agree that the content now
reflects our technical agreements and has support from a majority of the
technical experts that have worked on it.
Anybody interested in the content of the draft can send their comments,
whether they participate in the PWG work or not.
Please send your comments to the PWG IPP DL at: pwg-ipp at pwg.org.
The draft can be found at (there is no TXT version):
The PWG rules state that Last Calls for drafts need to be at least 10
We will start the Last Call tomorrow October 5, and the deadline for
comments is October 20, 2000.
If we get back comments, we will try to resolve those before voting on the
document in the PWG for publishing.
The final vote in the PWG can be done either in a PWG meeting or over email.
As there is no further PWG meeting until December, we are likely to do the
voting for this document over email.
