Hi Gail,

[forwarding to the WIMS and PMP mailing lists]

Thanks for catching these errors.

The text in section 4.4 was already supposed to have been deleted
(my mistake), based on WIMS/PMP WG review in January.

I have already reposted the PWG Process/3.0 with the correct filename
(so that it now appears twice in the 'pub/pwg/general' directory.

BTW - a PWG Last Call isn't a vote - I hope that, when these defects are
corrected and this specification actually goes to PWG Formal Vote, you
will cast a YES vote.

- Ira

Hi Ira,

I am not currently subscribed to the lists, but I have completed a
review of the specification. You indicated that you would get the vote
to the proper lists.

KMC must vote NO without Strong Opposition.

Section 4.4 of the specification states:

This document requires support for the new “printer-device-id” IPP
Printer Description attribute defined in section 5.2 in all
implementations of IPP/2.0 [PWG5100.10] or higher version.

However, it is not the place of this document to put this kind of a
requirement on separate specification.  I looked at the IPP/2.0 spec
[PWG5100.10] and it makes no mention of the 1284 device-id.  The newer
version of IPP/2.0 recommends this specification for versions 2.0 and
2.1 and requires it for 2.2.

 IPPv2.0 may require the use of "1284 Device ID" but not the other way around.

As a side note, I also noticed the link to the PWG process document
was no longer working.
ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/general/pwg-process-30.pdf  should always be
valid.  Additionally, I believe that access to previous versions of
the process document should remain valid. Other standards documents
refer to ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/general/pwg-process-20.pdf.

Subject: Request to confirm your review of PWG Cmd Set for 1284 Device ID


In order to complete our PWG Last Call in February of
"PWG Command Set Format for IEEE 1284 Device ID",
the PWG Process/3.0 requires that a quorum (30% of
voting PWG members) acknowledge that they have
reviewed this specification either with or without any
comments (inline in message).

If you are subscribed to BOTH the <pmp at pwg.org>
and <wims at pwg.org> mailing lists, you may send
your acknowledgment email directly - otherwise, please
send your email to me at <blueroofmusic at gmail.com>
and I'll forward it to the right mailing lists.

Please use a Subject line exactly as follows:

<company> has reviewed PWG Command Set for 1284 Device ID
and has <no comments/comments>

And include any comments in the body text of your email.

Thanks very much,
- Ira McDonald (PMP and WIMS editor)
