Keith & Patrik,

Here the short report from the IPP WG meeting:

The meeting was attended by 29 people. A short history and overview of the
project was presented by the chair.
The most important agenda point was a presentation by John Wenn on how to
build in a security parameter in the ipp:// scheme and mapping of that to
the HTTP Upgrade parameter. With the subsequent documentation of this
solution, which has been validated with the TLS and HTTP groups, it is
believed that all known issues raised by the IESG have been addressed by the
IPP WG. Larry Masinter led a discussion on interoperability between IPP and
IFax. There seemed to be sufficient interest in this subject to justify
writing an informational document that gives advice to implementors of
IPP/IFax gateways or implementation of both protocols in the same system or
device.
