All,

As a last minute comment I would like to suggest extending the time to
finish this document to span the next PWG meeting.

It seems to me that there is still too much discussion and too many lose
ends to close and publish this document quite yet...

Ron,

Unfortunately, I checked the wrong delivery service on the web site when I
ordered the ASME Y14.1M a week ago Friday and it is being delivered by truck
from New Jersey to LA and won't arrive until next Tuesday or Wednesday.  The
guy who I could get the numbers over the phone when home early today, so
we're out of luck.  I'm on vacation next week.

So maybe we add these sizes later, perhaps as a corrigendum or during last
call.

Tom

I just ordered a copy from the ASME.  It should be here next Tuesday.

Tom,

I do not have access to ASME-Y14.1M, so I am unable to do this
research.  Do you have a copy?

	Ron

IPP (RFC2911) has a number of media names that include engineering sizes
taken from [ASME-Y14.1M].  For some reason we only included them as media
names (e.g., iso-a1x3-transparent), and not as media size names (e.g.,
iso-a1x3) in IPP.  These size names are:

iso-a1x3, iso-a1x4
iso-a2x3, iso-a2x4, iso-a2x5
iso-a3x3, iso-a3x4, iso-a3x5, iso-a3x6, iso-a3x7
iso-a4x3, iso-a4x4, iso-a4x5, iso-a4x6, iso-a4x7, iso-a4x8, iso-a4x9

Should we add them?

Someone should look at [ASME-Y14.1M] and get the proper length dimensions
(which aren't in IPP), to go with the width dimensions which are in IPP.

Thanks,
Tom

The latest version is now available at:

ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/media-sizes/pwg-media-05.pdf

The major change is the merging of the envelope sizes
with the other tables and the separation of the media
type with the size.  In addition I have added the
definition of a format for custom media types and color
per a request from Norbert.

There are still two open issues that I am waiting for
clarification from Tom.

1. Tom added a reference [REG] in section 3, but no
corresponding entry in the References section.

2. The ABNF for the size name in section 5.1 may be
incorrect.  I am not an ABNF expert, but I believe that
    | "-" | "-" )  should be simply   | "-" )

I will try to attend the IPP teleconference tomorrow
to discuss any other issues concerning this document.
