IPP> FW: SLP WG LAST CALL notices

Hi folks,

The following two SLP documents are of significant interest to
IPP WG members.  The first addresses vendor extensions to the
SLPv2 protocol itself.  The second addresses attribute list
extensions to SLP templates (i.e., vendor private extensions).
The second is of particular applicability to the SLP 'printer:'
template we are reviewing at the IPP WG Telecon tomorrow.

Cheers,

Todd,

Since SVRLOC is on the short track to completing its charter (really! :)
new work on SLP is being done as individual submissions.  The draft that
I posted the WG last call on is an individual submission (by me).  You
can obtain the drafts at

  http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-guttman-svrloc-vendor-ext-00.txt
 
http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-guttman-slpv2-attrlist-ext-01.txt

Since the mailing list was sick (its fixed now!) the WG LAST CALL notice
was delayed.  For that reason, the WG LAST CALL will go through Feb 25
not the previously mentioned Feb 21.

Thanks everyone for reviewing these documents.  They will hopefully be 
advanced to Informational RFC.  They are extensions to the base protocol
which would significantly add to its scalability and extensibility in
my opinion.  

Erik
