    Hi Erik,


    I just checked this registry and found the old 'printer'
    template (v1.0) which had serious attribute naming problems
    when converted to an LDAP schema. The IETF IPP WG considers
    the SLP 'printer' v1.0 template obsolete and prefers the use
    of the 'printer' v2.0 template which is currently located at:


    in the file:

    draft-ietf-svrloc-printer-scheme-06.txt (8 March 2000)

    I'm happy to follow the right procedure to get this revised
    'printer' template registered - should I look at RFC 2609 and
    submit it to you (the designated reviewer)?

    - Ira McDonald, IPP WG member
      (co-author of SLP 'printer' template)

    We finally have the service template registry on line. See


    Please review the templates to make sure that the one(s) you
    submitted are correct. If there are any other templates which
    should be there or which you would like to submit, the procedures
    are described in RFC 2609. In brief, you should:

      - Write an internet draft which contains at least a template,
        security considerations section and the name of the submitter.

      - Send a request to svrloc-list@iana.org to have the i-d reviewed
        and sumbitted to the registry. NOTE: This alias is not yet
        set up! For the time being, please send the request to me
        directly at erik.guttman@sun.com. I will inform the list when
        the alias is set up.

      - If the template concerns a service which is widely deployed or
        for which there is an interested community, the internet draft
        should be reviewed. I (the designated expert) will seek to see
        that templates get apropriate peer review. This is an informal
        process (ie. no last calls will be issued).

      - If the template is in the proper format and there are issues
        raised about, the template will be added to the registry.

      - Remember that revised templates are submitted with new version

      - Please feel free to submit translations (ie. to Spanish) of any
        existing templates. I will add these translations to the registry.
