    Carl-Uno & All,

    We do not need the final version of the specification to carry on a
    discussion of the requirements for selecting a mandated notification
    mechanism for IPP. The final tweaks to the document should not stand in the
    way of this group arriving at a final decision for this issue. The
    modifications that are going to be made to the INDP document have already
    been listed on the mailing list. The recommendation for the mandated IPP
    notification mechanism has also been sent out on the list. I just have not
    seen any discussion on it and wanted to make sure that it does get discussed
    and resolved. We have a Bake-Off coming in which notification is slated to
    be tested. The sooner we get closure on this, the sooner implementation can
    proceed.

    My preference is that INDP be mandated. I feel that programmatic
    notification is critical to the development of robust IPP applications. One
    of those applications would be QUALDOCS. In the definition of IPP, and its
    associated notification mechanism, I am concerned primarily with client
    /server communications. End user notification, while useful, is not my
    primary objective. It is true that infrastructure will have to be
    configured to allow this traffic to pass. The same is true of outbound IPP
    requests. I imagine that most of our printers will also implement mailto. I
    have no objections to allowing both, but I think only one should be
    mandated.

    Pete

    Peter,

    As we all know, votes in IPP meetings can only be seen as recommendations to
    the group.

    We need to get the hopefully final draft version of the INDP method out, and
    then finally decide the matter on the IPP mailing list.

    Carl-Uno
