Now that we are close to having three standards published:


draft Printer MIB
PWG Job Monitoring MIB
IPP


we need to work out a process for maintaining these standards.


The things that need maintenance are:


1. Extensions that are proposed for registration by anyone
2. Clarifications, ambiguities, inconsistencies raised by anyone


We need a way to track the status of the above.


We need a process to resolve and record our agreements on the above.


We need to assign an editor for each standard to oversee this maintenance.


We need a public and open way for people to find out our decisions on
the above and relate them to the published standard.




Can we discuss ideas of how to proceed at our upcoming PWG meeting?


BTW, while we wait for IPP to be published, we are getting a number
of questions for clarification that could be handled as above
and either put into the document before it is published or added
afterwards.  Even after we publish there will always be more things found.


Thanks,
Tom
