All, 

This is a working group Last Call for the "Internet Printing Protocol (IPP):
Job and Printer Set Operations".  A version of this documents has been
forwarded to the Internet
Draft directory as <draft-ietf-ipp-job-printer-set-ops-02.txt>

PDF and Word versions of the drafts are also posted at the ietf-ipp web
site:  

          ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/ipp/

The Last Call notice follows:     

This is a formal request for final comments within the IETF IPP
working group for one document. The  document is "Internet Printing Protocol

(IPP): Job and Printer Set Operations" which is being proposed for
forwarding 
on to the IESG for consideration as Standards Track RFC.
  
This is a working group product, which has been thoroughly discussed since 
mid 1999. 

The document has undergone review and revisions during the past few
months and I believe that we now have working group consensus on its
adequacy. 

Note that the content in this draft is a subset from an earlier draft called

the "Set 2 Operations", which means that you have actually seen more
versions
of this draft text as the current draft version number suggests.

The purpose of a working group Last Call is in the style of "speak now or
forever hold your peace" in case there are fundamental objections which have
not gotten previous or adequate discussion, or minor errors which need
correction.  

Last Calls are for a minimum of 2 weeks. The period for working group
comments 
will close on Friday, 12 May, 2000 (US Pacific time reference), to allow
extra 
time due to the Easter Holidays.

The relevant document is:

	Title		: Internet Printing Protocol (IPP): Job and Printer
Set 
              Operations
	Author(s): T. Hastings, R. Herriot,  C. Kugler, H. Lewis
	Filename	: draft-ietf-ipp-job-printer-set-ops-02.txt
	Pages		: 51
	Date		: 18-Apr-00
	
This document specifies 3 additional OPTIONAL operations for use with
the Internet Printing Protocol/1.0 (IPP) [RFC2565, RFC2566], IPP/1.1
[ipp-mod, ipp-pro], and future versions.  The end user, operator, and
administrator Set-Job-Attributes and Set-Printer-Attributes operations
are used to modify IPP Job objects and Printer objects, respectively.
The third administrator Get-Printer-Supported-Values operation returns
values that the IPP Printer will accept for setting its 'xxx-supported'
attributes.

	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or

	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
