Hi Erik,

Thanks very much for clear direction.  I'll make a serious effort
to get the revised SLP 'service:printer' schema out before the
I-D cutoff on 10 March (for the Adelaide IETF plenary).

I labelled the last one 'v1.0' in the template source.  Should
I label the revision 'v1.1' in the template source?  Or should we
try to just publish the fixup as 'v1.0'?

Best Regards,

still lacks the registrations.  I sent them to IANA in December!

Go ahead.

Even if the template version 1.0 goes into the repository, we can submit 
the new draft as template version 1.1.  No problem.  

I intend to talk to some members of the IESG soon about how to escalate 
interaction with IANA so the template registry will get started.
