    This document is one of a set of documents, which together describe
    all aspects of a new Internet Printing Protocol (IPP). IPP is an
    application level protocol that can be used for distributed printing
    using Internet tools and technologies. This document describes a
    simplified model consisting of abstract objects, their attributes, and
    their operations that is independent of encoding and transport. The
    model consists of a Printer and a Job object. A Job optionally
    supports multiple documents. IPP 1.1 semantics allow end-users and
    operators to query printer capabilities, submit print jobs, inquire
    about the status of print jobs and printers, cancel, hold, release,
    and restart print jobs. IPP 1.1 semantics allow operators to pause,
    resume, and purge (jobs from) Printer objects. This document also
    addresses security, internationalization, and directory issues.

    This document is a product of the Internet Printing Protocol Working
    Group of the IETF.

    This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

    This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for
    the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
    for improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the
    "Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the
    standardization state and status of this protocol. Distribution
    of this memo is unlimited.

    This announcement is sent to the IETF list and the RFC-DIST list.
    Requests to be added to or deleted from the IETF distribution list
    should be sent to IETF-REQUEST@IETF.ORG. Requests to be
