The draft-ietf-ipp-ops-set2 should not be killed off. The Semantic Model
does contain operations and attributes that are defined in the draft
I have talked with Tom and he will help get the document finished off.
Please give him a call to work out the details.

To the IPP WG Members,
I got this message from our Area Director a few days ago:
A reminder: I still need to know what's going on with this document. If no definitive info is available by Friday 2 July (per my message of Thursday 17 June sent to the WG mailing list) I'm going to drop it.
I have since had contact with Harry Lewis who had orignally planned to do the final editing for this document (it is now the very last of our IETF IPP drafts), but it has turned out that Harry will not be able to finish that task.
In an earlier message I had offered to step in as editor if nobody else could do it.
However, Harry raised the question whether we really want this document to go forward on the IETF standards track, suggesting that current work on the WIMS protocol would be a better solution.
This view also seems to be supported by some other key IPP WG members.
In that ligth it seems that further work on draft-ietf-ipp-ops-set2 aka "IPP management" seems rather fruitless and my current suggestion is to just let this draft die.
If there is anybody out there who is already working on implementation of the draft and would be eager to see the document finalized I need your input rigth away.
I know that this news comes at a time where a number of WG members have already started their summer vacations, but we have been very close to killing off this document earlier without any major objections being expressed.
At one stage it seemed that Easy Software were about to start on the management part of IPP. I have tried to contact Michael Sweet, the key developer of CUPS, but he is currently on vacation. Is there anybody else who knows what the status of CUPS is in this area? As CUPS already contains various non-standard extentions to IPP, I assume that they can still do the management part as another private extension if they want to.
