    Hi folks, Thursday (24 February 2000)

    I spoke with Ken Jones (see below) at length on the phone
    this afternoon about this LDAP Schema named 'ippPrinter'.
    Ken followed the IPP/1.1 Generic Directory Schema exactly,
    except that all IPP Recommended (SLP Required) attributes
    were reduced to LDAP May (optional) - except 'printer-name'
    which is LDAP Must (required) - see page 3, section 2.1
    of Ken's I-D for the rationale.

    Also, the IPP attribute names have NOT been prefixed
    with 'printer-' for safety in the flat LDAP namespace -
    recommended in 'Conversion of LDAP Schemas to/from SLP
    Templates', <draft-ietf-svrloc-template-conversion-05.txt>.

    Also, the Printer MIB derived attributes in the SLP template
    have not been included (because Ken wrote straight from the
    IPP/1.1 Model and not by translation from the SLP template).
    Ken did adopt the use of '>' for ordered lists from the SLP
    template. So our representations are very close.

    Please copy Ken Jones (see headers on this note) on any

    PLEASE make comments while you can, folks.

    An LDAP Directory Schema Solution For Printers

    This document describes an LDAP directory schema for print services.
    The intention is to build upon the work done by the Internet Printing
    Protocol (IPP) group and illustrate how to extend that solution with an
    additional class to support existing Sun Microsystems printing
