Hi,

I just posted a Prototype draft of the PWG Command Set Format for IEEE
1284 Device ID at:

  ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/pmp/wd/wd-pmp1284cmdset10-20091130.pdf / doc
  - clean copy

  ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/pmp/wd/wd-pmp1284cmdset10-20091130-rev.pdf / doc
  - with redlines

For review during the WIMS/CIM/PMP WG session during the PWG
Face-to-Face at Dell on Tuesday 8 December 2009.

Cheers,
- Ira
