Title : Design Goals for an Internet Printing Protocol
Author(s) : F. Wright
Filename : draft-ietf-ipp-req-02.txt
Pages : 57
Date : 06-Jul-98

The design goals document, Design Goals for an Internet Printing
Protocol, takes a broad look at distributed printing functionality, and
it enumerates real-life scenarios that help to clarify the features
that need to be included in a printing protocol for the Internet. It
identifies requirements for three types of users: end users, operators,
and administrators. The design goals document calls out a subset of
end user requirements that are satisfied in IPP/1.0. Operator and
administrator requirements are out of scope for version 1.0.

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.

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
