    Members of the IESG,

    The IPP WG was recently copied on information about a new I-D for an LDAP
    schema for IPP printers, for which a request has also been sent to the IESG
    for publishing as an Informational RFC.

    The IPP WG has worked with the SLP WG to produce a printing schema for SLP,
    which we intended to then map to a matching LDAP schema.

    The <draft-sun-ldap-print-schema-00.txt> attempts to provide an LDAP schema
    for IPP printers. Although the IPP WG welcomes the effort to have such a
    schema and the I-D authors have used input from IPP documents, an initial
    check of the I-D text indicates that there are a few discrepancies between
    the IPP documents and the I-D, in particular when it comes to the use of
    syntaxes, and the specification of mandatory vs. optional elements.

    We have contacted the editors of the I-D and would like to work with them to
    iron out the differences before the RFC is published. We are prepared to do
    this quickly with a minimum of process delay. Having an informational RFC on
    an IPP schema now and a standards track RFC with slightly different printer
    specifications later on the same subject, would only confuse readers of RFCs
    and implementers of LDAP servers.

    Carl-Uno Manros
    Chair of IPP WG

    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
