    This is a working group Last Call for the "Internet Printing Protocol/1.1:
    Implementer's Guide". The latest version of this document has been
    forwarded to the Internet Draft directory as

    The Last Call notice follows:

            This is a formal request for final comments within the IETF IPP
    working group for one document. The document is "Internet Printing
    Protocol/1.1: Implementer's Guide" which is being proposed for forwarding on
    to the IESG for consideration as an Informational RFC to complement the
    previous suite of IPP/1.1 documents. This is a working group product, which
    has been thoroughly discussed since mid 1999.

    The document is an update to the IPP/1.0 Implementer's Guide" and has
    considerable review and revisions during the past year and I believe that
    we now have working group consensus on its adequacy. It is recognized that
    this document will need to be updated with any additional experience that
    we accumulate over time, but we should get the current version out as an
    RFC to a wider audience at this stage. It will replace the
    <draft-ietf-ipp-implementers-guide-v11-00.txt> version
    which is still in queue in the IESG for review and publication.

    The purpose of a working group Last Call is in the style of "speak now or
    forever hold your peace" in case there are fundamental objections which have
    not gotten previous or adequate discussion, or minor errors which need

    Last Calls are for a minimum of 2 weeks. We will start the Last Call period
    today Friday 9 June, 2000 and the period for working group comments will
    on Friday, 23 June (US Pacific time reference), 2000.

    The relevant document is:

            Title : Internet Printing Protocol/1.1: Implementer's Guide
            Author(s) : T. Hastings, C. Manros, C. Kugler, H. Holst, P. Zehler
            Filename : draft-ietf-ipp-implementers-guide-v11-01.txt
            Pages : 84
            Date : 08-Jun-00

    This document is one of a set of documents, which together describe all
    aspects of a new Internet Printing Protocol (IPP). IPP is an
    application level protocol that can be used for distributed printing
    using Internet tools and technologies. This document contains
    information that supplements the IPP Model and Semantics [IPP-MOD] and
    the IPP Transport and Encoding [IPP-PRO] documents. It is intended to
    help implementers understand IPP/1.1, as well as IPP/1.0, and some of
    the considerations that may assist them in the design of their client
    and/or IPP object implementations. For example, a typical order of
    processing requests is given, including error checking. Motivation for
    some of the specification decisions is also included.

    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.
