I.II About GSA Protocol Extensions

Adoption of extensions to GSA protocols is governed by GSA Policy GP128, available for download from the

main GSA web site.

Extensions to a GSA protocol are developed by a GSA member and donated to GSA unconditionally. When

an extension is approved by a technical committee and/or the GSA Board of Directors, it is initially

documented separately, as in this document, but is then scheduled for inclusion in the next major revision of

the associated GSA protocol.

Extension documents only define the extended components of a GSA protocol and must be used in

conjunction with the original GSA protocol on which the extension is based. For example: in an extension to

the G2S protocol, if the extension adds new attributes to an existing command that originally contained several

attributes, the extension documentation will not document those original attributes, which are already

documented in detail in the G2S protocol.

Extension packages for GSA XML based protocols include updated and/or new XML schema files in addition

to the extension documentation. The schemas define the syntax for the protocol extensions. The document

defines additional requirements, business logic, and semantics that are required to be compliant with the

protocol extension.

I.III About G2S Extension 1i
