Hi Ira,

I'm wondering why templates for SLPv1 is considered. The only v1
implementation and deployment of recognizable size that I know of
is in Novell's NetWare 5. Is Novell interested in v1 printer

At Axis, we are implementing v2 precisely because we want to use
the printer services you're defining. I don't think v1 templates
are important unless someone is explicitly requesting it. I know
that Erik and others working with the v2 protocol specifications
would like to see people moving to v2.
