    I think the idea is that if you support a Job Template attribute (such as

    job-hold-until) then you will return it when requested by a client. It

    matter if the attribute wasn't specified at job creation, as the default

    (job-hold-until-default) value will be used instead to set the attribute at

    submission time.

    Subject: IPP> Question concerning job-hold-until

    Hello, all!

    I have a quick implementation question concerning the job-hold-until
    attribute, which doesn't seem to be addressed in the final model
    document for IPP/1.1.

    Without going into too much detail, we have a customer that wants
    to know if the job-hold-until attribute should always be returned
    by a get-jobs or get-job-attributes request, or if it should only
    be returned if the job-hold-until attribute was specified for the
    job (at job creation or later with a hold-job request)

    If the latter, what happens when the hold condition expires (e.g.
    the job starts printing)? Do we change the value to "no-hold"?

    Similarly, if we always should send job-hold-until, do we send a
    value of "no-hold" or an "unknown" value tag?
