    Suggested topic for tomorrow's (11/28/00) telecon and the IPP WG meeting
    next week (12/07/00) and the mailing list:

    One of the short comings of IPP is that there is no single document that
    pulls together the set of standards necessary for end to end printing on the
    Internet and within the Enterprise. The IPP documents deal only with job
    submission, job management, and Printer (service) management. To overcome
    this problem, it is proposed to write a short IETF standards document (10-15
    pages) that would cite other standards for complete end-to-end printing.
    The purpose is to have a single standard that defines all the aspects of IPP
    Printing from boot-up, registration, discover, Client Print Support File
    down-load (print drivers, font metrics, etc.), job submission, job
    management, and Print Service management for Internet and Enterprise
    printing.

    Suggested working title: "Complete Internet Printing"

    This document will leverage existing open standards, rather than repeating
    information, only adding profile information as needed in order to achieve
    interoperability for conforming implementations. The following open
    standards will be referenced:

    Boot:
      DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, RFC 2131)
          DHCP Options (RFC 2132)
          DHCP Options for Service Location Protocol (RFC 2610)
      DHCP Option for Name Service Search (RFC 2937)
      Dynamic Configuration of IPv4 Link Local Addresses
      - draft-ietf-zeroconf-ipv4-linklocal-00.txt

    Registration:
      LDAPv2 (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol v2, RFC 1777)
      LDAPv3 (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol v3, RFC 2251)
      LDAP Schema for Printer Services
      - draft-ietf-ipp-ldap-printer-schema-03.txt

    Discovery:
      SLPv2 (Service Location Protocol v2, RFC 2608)
      Definition of the Printer Abstract Service Type v2.0
      - draft-ietf-svrloc-printer-scheme-06.txt
      - also in permanent IANA Service Location Template Registry

    Client Print Support File Down-Load:
      RFC TBA - Internet Printing Protocol (IPP): Printer Installation Extension

    Job Submission and Job Management:
      RFC 2911 - IPP/1.1 Model and Semantics
      RFC 2910 - IPP/1.1 Encoding and Transport
      RFC TBA - IPP FAX
      RFC 2707 Job Monitoring MIB - for job attributes

    Document Formats:
      PostScript
      PCL
      XHTML-Print
      TIFF/FX

    Event Notification:
      RFC TBA - IPP Event Notification

    Printer Management:
      RFC 2911 - IPP/1.1 Model and Semantics
      RFC 1759 - Printer MIB
      RFC TBA - Printer MIB v2

    A key part of the standard will be to define conformance, citing
    combinations of the above.

    Thanks,
    Tom
