I thought the UPD study group was formed to talk about print drivers
(extending the concept of the GPD concept to the next evel, etc..), and
not a host-to-device protocol. I don't recall wire protocols ever
brought up in the last couple of meetings. If there is both an
application model (GPD, etc) and a wire protocol developed, I would hope
there would be two study groups involved, since the expertise on either
topic is largely orthogonal.

IPP and UPD projects

Carl-Uno,

In your message titled "ADM - 'IPP Job Openings'" (attached
below)
you listed this item:

4) A champion for the host-to-device task (this is currently
outside the scope of the IETF WG).

Seems we keep crossing on this particular path, namely, whether
the IPP project (of which the IETF IPP WG is part of that
project)
is supposed to take on the requirements for a true
host-to-device
protocol.

I have stated many, many times in the past that the IPP project
should NOT attempt to address the "host-to-device" protocol
issue.
Instead, the UPD project was formed (by me, back in May '97) for
*expressly* this kind of work.

IPP is for printing over the Internet. UPD addresses the more
critical needs of the intranet, with requirements that far
surpass
those of the IPP.

Let's let UPD take its own course, without placing unnecessary
constraints on it from the outstart.

Comments from others?
