    I agree with Harry. I think it's a little too early to test notification
    stuff at the October bake-off.
    The specifications is not finished yet, and I don't want to waste a lot of
    time at the bake-off.
    Give the implementers a change to implement and do their own tests, before
    testing with others.
    If someone, for some reason, wants a bake-off in October, I think we should
    only mandate testing

    Sorry, I won't make the call today. Out of office.

    My opinion on the bakeoff... too early. Only decided last month which
    notification protocols to "bless". Little time to implement. I host is
    willing, suggest same location, March 2001. Doubt my opinion will be well
    accepted so I'll just caution that we're heading into a bakeoff with a
    huge number of combinations to test (IPPv1.1, Backward compatibility, two
    notification schemes, several forms of authentication, SSL, TLS...) and I
    would anticipate small "pockets" of sparse interoperability. A bakeoff is
    always a good opportunity to learn and "lift" the state of interop, so I'm
    not opposed (and will attend). Coordination of a BO is a massive effort
    so I'm not criticizing Pete... rather I commend him for attempting to hold
    our original schedule. Just think more time might be wise.

    My 2 cents.

    IPP Phone Conference - 000816

    We will run a phone conference this week.

    I had originally hoped to get somebody from the Linux
    community to join in this Wednesday, but it turns out
    everybody is at the Linux World conference this week.

    This means that we can actually spend most of our time
    on the IPP bake-off discussion which was announced earlier
    by Peter Zehler.

    Here is the dial-in information:
