Richard, my apologies that I will not be able to attend the BOF in D.C. My
recommendation, however, is to continue this work as part of IPP. I believe
QUALDOCS and IPP are complimentary in that QUALDOCS has been driving some very
appropriate requirements for IPP (i.e. delivery notification) while IPP provides
the basis and infrastructure for achieving the goal of high fidelity rendering
across the web. There is an expanding list of IPP announced, beta and/or shipped
implementations - another reason for QUALDOCS to continue building on IPP. I
think QUALDOCS and IPP are natural, together, and should remain focused in the
PWG/IPP arena.

Subject: IPP> QUALDOCS 2ND BOF Agenda ?

I've been trying to secure a 2nd BOF spot for QUALDOCS at IETF Washington DC.

I think there are a number of issues that are worth covering before a
decision is made to request that a formal WG be formed.

1. We have a draft Goals Document that needs to be reviewed.

>A URL for this Internet-Draft is:

We should make some decision whether this draft is suitable as a separate
document or is more appropriate as an addendum to RFC 2542 the Goals and
Requirements for Internet Fax document authored by Larry Masinter.

On that basis we should discuss possible directions the work could
take. Both the IETF FAX group and the IPP group within the IETF are
winding down operations. Its possible that both groups may re charter for
new work.

At the last BOF it was pretty clear that there were 2 basic avenues to take
.. either use IPP as the baseline protocol or some SMTP SESSION mode.

Since there is no current work contemplated on creating a SMTP SESSION
protocol, it seems reasonable to conclude that IPP is the most likely
candidate to develop a QUALDOCS supported protocol.

The question is a new WG needed or should this be part of ongoing IPP

Thoughts? Ideas ??
