    One of the agenda points for next week's IETF IPP WG meeting is the future
    of the project.

    The Application Area Directors are on a constant chase for WGs that they can
    close down to make space for new WGs.

    We are not quite done yet, as we have a number of I-Ds which are still
    sitting in queue at the IESG, but it looks like we start running dry on
    further new documents.

    We still have the four documents that I sent out recently for IPP WG Last
    Call, and we are still trying to reach closure on the resolution of all
    issues from the latest b**e-off, but after that I can only imagine smaller
    additions, which can either be handled as personal suggestions for IPP
    extensions, or be farmed out to the Printer Working Group, as we have
    already done in some cases earlier. I also think that we have specified so
    much IPP functionality that it will take a while for implementers to put
    what we have already defined into products, so a bit of pausing in the IPP
    standardization work may not hurt.

    My hope is that if we can make close of the WG dependent on faster
    processing of our drafts in the IESG, we might have a win-win situation both
    for the ADs and the IPP WG.

    Any comments on this proposal before I talk to our ADs about this next week?
