PWG Company Representatives,
The following 3 documents have been developed by the PWG IPP WG and are now
ready for final voting as PWG Standards Documents.
The voting process will officially start today, and taking the holidays into
consideration will end on January 12, 2001.
Only one vote is allowed per company/PWG member.
PLEASE SEND YOUR VOTE TO THE PWG SECRETARIAT AT: p.lefkin at ieee.org

Process document are in section 6.4 at:
Here are the 3 documents with references. The PDF version is the official
PWG document, the other two formats are for your convenience.
Their titles and abstracts are, respectively:
Internet Printing Protocol (IPP): Override Attributes for Documents and
This document specifies an extension to the Internet Printing
Protocol/1.0 (IPP) [RFC2565, RFC2566] and IPP/1.1 [ipp-mod, ipp-pro]. This
extension relaxes the restriction that each attribute value is the same for
all pages, all documents and all document copies within a job. For example,
with this extension, page 1 of a job could have a different media from the
other pages in the job or document 2 of a job could be stapled while the
other documents of the job are not. As another example, the first ten copies
of a document could be printed on letter paper and stapled while the
eleventh copy of the same document could be printed on transparencies with
This extension supports document overrides and page overrides by
adding two new Job Template attributes: "document-overrides" and
"page-overrides" -- both have a syntax type of "1setOf collection". Each
'collection' value for "document-overrides" contains an attribute that
identifies the overridden documents, namely "input-documents" or
"output-documents". The 'collection' value also contains one or more
attributes that are overrides for the identified documents, e.g.
"document-format", "finishings", and "media". Each 'collection' value for
"page-overrides" contains two attributes that identify the overridden pages,
namely "input-documents" or "output-documents" plus "pages". The
'collection' value also contains one or more attributes that are overrides
for the identified pages, e.g. "sides" and "media". When the overrides apply
to some but not all document copies, the 'collection' value for
"document-overrides" or "page-overrides" contains the attribute of
This extension also supports subset finishing by adding a new Job
Template attribute "pages-per-subset", which specifies the number of pages
per subset. The extension allows finishing and other document attributes to
be applied to such subsets of pages.
Internet Printing Protocol (IPP): "output-bin" attribute extension
This document defines an extension to the IPP/1.0 [RFC2566] & IPP/1.1
[RFC2911] Model and Semantics specification for the OPTIONAL "output-bin"
(type2 keyword | name(MAX)) Job Template attribute. This attribute allows
the client to specify in which output bin a job is to be placed and to query
the Printer's default and supported output bins.
Internet Printing Protocol (IPP): "finishings" attribute values extension
This document specifies the additional enum values 'fold', 'trim',
'bale', 'booklet-maker', 'jog-offset', 'bind-left', 'bind-top',
'bind-right', and 'bind-bottom' for the IPP "finishings" Job Template
attribute for use with the Internet Printing Protocol/1.0 (IPP) [RFC2566,
RFC2565] and Internet Printing Protocol/1.1 (IPP) [RFC2911, RFC2910]. This
attribute permits the client to specify additional finishing options,
including values that include a specification of a coordinate system for the
placement of finishings operation with respect to the corners and edges of
portrait and landscape documents.
