    Hi Ira,

    I believe that one of the design points was to allow notifications to be
    sent to a third party. The use case that was thrown around was the
    ability of the notification to be sent to an administrative assistant to
    be picked up.

    Hi,

    Note that our IETF ADs observed that there are serious security
    flaws in the 'mailto' Delivery Method for IPP Notifications.
    These will need to be addressed in any PWG-ISTO standard.

    Simplified explanation: An IPP Printer MUST NOT accept any
    subscription for 'mailto' notifications from an anonymous
    IPP Job submitter - otherwise, the IPP Printer is a spam
    engine. An IPP Printer SHOULD use an LDAP directory (or
    other authoritative source) to ensure that the recipient
    of IPP 'mailto' notifications is in fact the Job Owner.

    Cheers,
    - Ira

    Yes.

    The CUPS implementation will be ready for testing very soon, based
    on the last draft.
