Hi folks,                                       Monday (31 January 2000)

I've just sent the final version of 'Definition of the Printer Abstract
Service Type' to the Internet-Drafts editor and posted a shadow copy on
the PWG server at:

Erik - please register this 'printer:' template with IANA - thanks.
Carl-Uno Manros (chair IETF IPP WG) wants this 'printer:' template
registered with IANA as soon as possible.

All changes from the previous (October 1999) draft are based on IETF IPP
WG reviews Wednesday (12 January 2000) and Wednesday (26 January 2000).

Harry Lewis (IBM) and I are working on an LDAP schema translation of
this template (following James Kempf's SLP to LDAP conversion spec).

I-D Editor,                                     Monday (31 January 2000)


Please place this document in the Internet-Drafts repository named:

    <draft-ietf-svrloc-printer-scheme-05.txt> (January 2000)

It replaces the previous:

    <draft-ietf-svrloc-printer-scheme-04.txt> (October 1999)

This draft has been updated based on the IETF IPP WG's final review of
the previous (October 1999) draft.  This draft is a conforming superset
of Appendix E 'Generic Directory Schema' in the IPP/1.1 Model,
<draft-ietf-ipp-model-v11-04.txt> (work-in-progress, June 1999).

Thanks very much,
