Keith,

SWAP (http://people.netscape.com/kswenson/SWAP/charter.html )
is a project with much similarity to IPP. =20

It uses HTTP, but has special methods and encodes its parameters in XML.
It is for workflow management, but it has a set of operations that are=20
rather similar to IPP (see below). The SWAP web page list you, Keith Moore,=
=20
as one of the area directors.

The following text comes from the SWAP charter:

"The purpose of working group is to provide a simple HTTP based way to=20
invoke, monitor, control, and be informed about a generic asynchronous=20
service.=20

The protocol defines:=20

=B7 a standard way to invoke a generic service, which returns=
an
instance ID=20

Then, using the ID, the protocol defines how to=20

=B7 get the current status of that instance of the service,=20
=B7 give that instance of the service data values=20
=B7 pause or resume that instance of the service=20
=B7 retrieve preliminary results of that instance of the=
service=20
=B7 register an address to receive event notifications from=
the

=B7 receive events from that instance of the service "

What are your thoughts about SWAP? Are they going to be allowed to=20
use an http scheme?=20
