We *did* define in complete detail how a set of available job tickets are
configured on a FaxIn service and how they are selected - and all of
this is in SM schema and the most recent FaxIn draft.
BUT - I strongly urge that we *not* put FaxIn into Cloud Model, because
the IPP WG has decided (and written into their charter a year ago) that
they will *not* do an IPP FaxIn service - no protocol binding to satisfy the
PWG prototype requirement.

>>>> So.long story short, should we:
>> 1. Drop FaxIn from the Cloud Model
>> 2. Allow a Cloud FaxIn Service to create a Job from an incoming Fax,
> and then relay the fax data to a Local FaxIn Service for printing and/or
> local storage
>> 3. Also allow a LocalFaxIn Service to create a Job from an incoming
> Fax and relay the fax data to a Cloud FaxIn service for storage?
>>>> There are also some parallel questions for FaxOut. Should the Cloud
> Model consider:
>> A. Just configurations where the Fax Modem is 'Local' (fax transmitted
> and locally generated from locally scanned hardcopy and/or Digital Data
> obtained by the local FaxOut (or Proxy) Service or Digital Data pulled
> the Cloud FaxOut Service.)
>> B. Also configurations where the Fax Modem is in the Cloud (fax
> generated from uploaded locally scanned hardcopy and/or uploaded Digital
> Data obtained by the local FaxOut or Proxy, or Digital Data otherwise
> accessed by the Cloud FaxOut Service.
>>>> It might be noted that whatever we decide, FaxIn should be addressed in the
> SM3 specification.
>>>> Many thanks for your consideration.
