    I forgot to list the 3 issues in the mail note for discussion at the

    ISSUE 01: In attribute groups [ipp-mod] allows a Printer either (1) to
    reject a request with duplicate named attributes OR (2) to choose exactly
    one of the attributes as the one to be used. Should we REQUIRE the Printer
    to reject duplicate named attributes in a collection value as stated above
    or allow the Printer to choose one member attribute as a second alternative
    as we do with attribute groups?

    ISSUE 02 - The example contains a 1setOf collection and a nested collection,
    but does not contain a 1setOf member attribute. Should there be four
    separate examples that show a simple collection, a 1setOf member attribute,
    a 1setOf collection, and a nested collection?

    ISSUE 03 - Since this is intended to be a standards track document, do we
    also register the attribute syntax with IANA?

    Also here is the Abstract:

    This document specifies an OPTIONAL attribute syntax called 'collection' for
    use with the Internet Printing Protocol/1.0 (IPP) [RFC2565, RFC2566],
    IPP/1.1 [ipp-mod, ipp-pro], and subsequent versions. A 'collection' is a
    container holding one or more named values, which are called "member"
    attributes. A collection allows data to be grouped like a PostScript
    dictionary or a Java Map. This document also specifies the conformance
    requirements for a definition document that defines a collection attribute.

    The 'none' out-of-band attribute value is also defined for use with the

    I also made an Internet-Draft and sent it to the secretariat even though it
    has issues. I didn't copy it to the meeting-txt-000404 directory, since it
    won't be an Internet-Draft during the 4/4/00 IPP meeting:


    Please send any comments to the mailing list.

    Peter Zehler and I have updated the collection paper to include scheme 2 as
    the encoding method. I know that it is way past the one week deadline for
    papers for the IPP WG meeting. But if you have the time and inclination,
    here is the updated paper. It replaces the 000309 version.


    I've also updated the pdf and doc meeting directories and .zip files as
