    A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
    This draft is a work item of the Internet Printing Protocol Working Group of the IETF.

            Title : Internet Printing Protocol (IPP): Resource Objects
                              and Get Resource Operations
            Author(s) : T. Hastings, I. McDonald
            Filename : draft-ietf-ipp-get-resource-00.txt
            Pages : 30
            Date : 10-Jul-00
    This document is a submission to the Internet Printing Protocol
    Working Group of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).
    Comments should be submitted to the ipp@pwg.org mailing list.
    This IPP Get Resource document specifies an extension to IPP/1.0
    [RFC-2565] [RFC-2566] and IPP/1.1 [IPP-MOD] [IPP-PRO]. This document
    extends the current closed IPP object model with a passive
    polymorphic object that is intended to satisfy most needs for new
    object types in the long-term evolution of IPP via an extensible
    object framework.
    This document defines: Resource object (passive polymorphic object);
    Resource get operations (e.g., Get-Resource-Attributes); Resource
    attributes (e.g., 'resource-name'); new Printer attributes (e.g.,
    'resource-type-supported'); Resource type of Driver (a morph of the
    Resource object); methods for supporting 'driver download' to IPP
    Client systems.

    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.
