This document specifies 3 additional OPTIONAL operations for use with
the Internet Printing Protocol/1.0 (IPP) [RFC2565, RFC2566], IPP/1.1
[ipp-mod, ipp-pro], and future versions. The first is the Set-Printer-
Attributes operation that operators/administrators may perform on a
Printer object to change Printer attribute values. The second is the
Set-Job-Attributes operation that end-users may perform on their jobs
and operators/administrators may perform on any job, depending on
circumstances. The operation changes the Job attribute values. The third
is the Get-Printer-Supported-Values operation that
operators/administrators may perform on a Printer object in order to
determine acceptable values for setting 'xxx-supported' attributes using
the Set-Printer-Attributes operation.
