    Gentlemen,

    I recently sent you a message with the following introduction:

    "I was alerted early this year that IANA had questioned why there wasn't an
    IANA section in the IPP/1.1 Encoding & Transport draft. The original reason
    was that all the relevant text on IANA registrations was defined in the
    IPP/1.1 Model & Semantics draft. However, we decided to add an IANA section
    in the IPP/1.1 Encoding & Transport draft and also decided to improve a bit
    on the IANA section in the IPP/1.1 Model & Semantics document to make sure
    that we had a complete and watertight description. In essence, the rules now
    state that there are certain code ranges reserved for future standards track
    extensions. In some cases there are also code ranges for vendor extensions.
    Both kinds need to be registered by IANA. For completeness, we also added a
    new section on I18N in the IPP/1.1 Encoding & Transport draft, which
    basically references back to the IPP/1.1 Model & Semantics draft, where
    these details are described.

    While updating the IPP/1.1 Model & Semantics draft (sections 6 and 11), we
    also folded in the revised version of Appendix C, which was earlier sent to
    the IESG as a separate draft (draft-ietf-ipp-media-engineering-00.txt)
    asking it to replace the old Appendix C before publishing as RFC. A few
    minor editorial fixes were also made, but absolutely no changes were made to
    the technical content, which would cause a new technical review of the
    drafts. It is our hope that these revisions will help IESG and IANA in the
    continued review process."

    It turned out that the drafts I pointed you to last time had some ASCII
    formatting errors, in particular missing page breaks, so the editors have
    produced new versions to use instead. Sorry for any extra trouble this
    may cause you in keeping track of things.

    Here are the revised details:

    Replacing <draft-ietf-ipp-protocol-v11-03.txt and -04.text> is:

            Title : Internet Printing Protocol/1.1: Encoding and
    Transport
            Author(s) : R. Herriot, S. Butler, P. Moore, R. Turner, J.
    Wenn
            Filename : draft-ietf-ipp-protocol-v11-05.txt
            Pages : 44
            Date : 06-Mar-00
            A URL for this Internet-Draft is:
            
    http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ipp-protocol-v11-05.txt

    Replacing <draft-ietf-ipp-model-v11-04.txt and -05.txt> and
    <draft-ietf-ipp-media-engineering-00.txt> is:

            Title : Internet Printing Protocol/1.1: Model and
    Semantics
            Author(s) : R. de Bry, T. Hastings, R. Herriot,
                              S. Isaacson, P. Powell
            Filename : draft-ietf-ipp-model-v11-06.txt
            Pages : 204
            Date : 06-Mar-00
            A URL for this Internet-Draft is:
    http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ipp-model-v11-06.txt

    Hope to hear some news about these drafts soon considering that a number of
    IPP/1.1 implementations are already under way, and one company has already
    released products. The latter company did not want to go out with an
    "experimental" IPP/1.0 product, so have waited since last summer for the
    real IPP standards track RFCs to come out. Apparently they gave up waiting.
