Perhaps you can mention appendices F & G to Google since they contain a JSON mapping of a simple ticket and capability.  Another approach would be to create an XML document instance containing just the features that Google mentioned in their specification.  XML SPY can generate that easily.  The XML file can then be edited to be a bit more realistic.  Then XML SPY can create a JSON document from the XML document.  I don't know if there is a tool around to convert JSON to Protobuf but I suspect there is one around.  Another alternative would be to edit the document to provide the Protobuf encoding of the PWG semantics for the feature in the specification.

Subject: [MFD] Call for action and Minutes of 18 Feb Cloud WG call

The minutes of the 18 February Cloud WG conference call are posted at:

Note that there were some important and time critical items discussed, particularly relating to PWG response to the two Cloud Imaging Service specifications provided by Google.  Google has given the PWG the opportunity to comment on and potentially contribute to these specifications in a way that may allow us to both make optimum use of the established imaging semantics  and to provide our customers with consistent imaging capabilities appropriate to their needs. It is strongly suggested that we should take full advantage of this opportunity.

The Google draft specifications are posted at:

Comments on these specifications, best presented to this mail  list, are encouraged. In addition:

1.       The PWG Job Ticket and Printer Capabilities standard will be sent to Google with a request that this be accepted as an alternate to the PPD and MSPS (XPS) structures

2.       Recognizing that the PWG Job Ticket and Printer Capabilities standard is extremely broad in scope, at our request Glen Petrie has generated a table identifying the elements and element value sets appropriate for three levels of Users. This is posted at ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/cloud/white/pwg.pjt.level.config.for.PWG.h  (an MS Word version may be available shortly).

a.       Since most of these elements/values are optional, it is understood that these three subsets are suggested sets that should be understood by Cloud Print Services in accepting capabilities information from printers and providing that information to Clients, and should be accepted in Print Job Tickets. Cloud Print Services may, of course,  recognize a larger, smaller, or different subset.

b.      The membership is requested to review this table and voice any strong criticisms, objections or preferences promptly, because it is our intent to pass this information on to Google promptly.

It is also requested that the Feb 18 minutes be reviewed  and comments sent to this list because several questions arose, particularly with the issue of Print-by-reference, that have a bearing the current work in progress.

Many thanks,

Bill Wagner, PWG Cloud WG vice-chair.
