    Norbert,

    What do you mean by "paper source"? Give some examples? Do you mean input
    trays?

    We currently don't have a way in IPP for a client to find out what is in
    each input tray. However, we do have a way for the client to figure out
    what is loaded in input trays, by querying the "media-ready" (see RFC 2911)
    and/or "media-col-ready" (see Production Printing spec) Printer attributes.
    The client get a list of distinct media instances that are currently loaded
    in input trays.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Subject: IPP> paper sources

    Though studying some RFC I do not find information about support of paper
    sources in IPP.
    I found some tray names in "Model and Semantics", but no connection to any
    keywords.
    I did specifically check "Production Printing Attributes", where I find
    media size and type, but not source.
    Is that intended? Did I oversee so anything?
    If so, please simply point me somewhere.
    Thanks
    Norbert
