    Hi,

    The IPP WG has been working with a couple of LDAP experts to produce a first
    I-D for a LDAP printer schema, see details below.

    I would like to have a wider review of this document from the experts in the
    LDAPEXT WG to make certain that we have got it right before making an IPP WG
    Last Call for subsequent submission to the IESG.

    The draft has been synchronized to align with the directory requirements in
    the IPP specs for IPP/1.1, which is currently under IESG review, but is also
    applicable for other commonly used printing protocols.

    This draft has also been synchronized with and is in effect derived from a
    corresponding SLP schema draft:
    <draft-ietf-svrloc-printer-scheme-06.txt>

    I will put discussion of this IPP LDAP document on the agenda for the IPP WG
    in IETF47. We are meeting on the Tuesday afternoon. Please try to attend if
    you have comments that you want to discuss.

    Regards,

    Carl-Uno Manros
    Chair of IETF IPP WG

    A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts
    directories.
    This draft is a work item of the Internet Printing Protocol Working Group of
    the IETF.

            Title : Internet Printing Protocol (IPP): LDAP Schema for
                              Printer Services
            Author(s) : P. Fleming, K. Jones, H. Lewis, I. McDonald
            Filename : draft-ietf-ipp-ldap-printer-schema-00.txt
            Pages : 26
            Date : 09-Mar-00
            
    This document defines a common printer schema for use with LDAP
    directories (a directory service supporting the Lightweight Directory
    Access Protocol (LDAP)). Using this common printer schema enables
    client applications to use LDAP to search for printers using
    application or user specified search criteria. Searches are defined
    based on the entry's type and attributes independent of the LDAP
    directory being used.
    This document describes the LDAP schema, object classes and
    attributes, for SLP printer templates. This document uses the
    printer attributes defined in Appendix E. of [IPPMOD], the
    'printer:' service template defined in [SLPPRT], and the mapping
    between SLP service advertisements and LDAP descriptions of services
    defined in [SLPLDAP] to define an LDAP printer schema.
    The goal of this document is to define a consistent schema to be used
    by printers and print servers. The LDAP printer schema described in
    this document MAY be used in part or whole.

    NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
            MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
            feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
            command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
            a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
            exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
            "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
            up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
            how to manipulate these messages.
                    
                    
    Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
    implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
    Internet-Draft.
