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): LDAP Schema for Printer Services" which is being proposed
for forwarding on to the IESG for publication as an RFC to complement the
previous suite of IPP/1.1 documents. This is a working group product, which
has been thoroughly discussed since mid 1999.
The document has undergone considerable review and revisions during the past
year in collaboration with experts from the SLP and LDAP community and I
believe that we now have working group consensus on its adequacy.
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
Last Calls are for a minimum of 2 weeks. We will start the Last Call period
today Friday 7 June, 2000 and the period for working group comments will
close on Friday, 21 June (US Pacific time reference), 2000.

This document is a product of the Internet Printing Protocol Working
Group, chartered by the IETF. Comments should be sent to the

This document defines a common printer schema for use with LDAP
directories (a directory service supporting the Lightweight Directory
Access Protocol (LDAP)). Using this common printer schema enables
client applications to use LDAP to search for printers using
application or user specified search criteria. Searches are defined
based on the entry's type and attributes independent of the LDAP
directory being used.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
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.
