    This is a working group Last Call for the "Internet Printing Protocol
    (IPP): LDAP Schema for Printer Services" 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

    (IPP): LDAP Schema for Printer Services" which is being proposed
    for forwarding on to the IESG for publication as an 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 has undergone considerable review and revisions during the past

    year in collaboration with experts from the SLP and LDAP community and I
    believe that we now have working group consensus on its adequacy.

    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 7 June, 2000 and the period for working group comments will
    close on Friday, 21 June (US Pacific time reference), 2000.

    The relevant document is:

            Title : Internet Printing Protocol (IPP): LDAP Schema for
                              Printer Services
            Author(s) : P. Fleming, K. Jones, H. Lewis, I. McDonald
            Filename : draft-ietf-ipp-ldap-printer-schema-02.txt
            Pages : 26
            Date : 06-Jul-00
    This document is a product of the Internet Printing Protocol Working
    Group, chartered by the IETF. Comments should be sent to the
    ipp@pwg.org mailing list and the principal editor
    This document defines a common printer schema for use with LDAP
    directories (a directory service supporting the Lightweight Directory
    Access Protocol (LDAP)). Using this common printer schema enables
    client applications to use LDAP to search for printers using
    application or user specified search criteria. Searches are defined
    based on the entry's type and attributes independent of the LDAP
    directory being used.

            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.
