This holds an existing job.


This holds new jobs submitted to a printer and is not yet
implemented by CUPS (but it *is* a valid IPP extension operation,
which is why it is listed)

FWIW, if you want to hold a job that you submit, just include the
"job-hold-until" attribute in your IPP_PRINT_JOB or IPP_CREATE_JOB
request.  A value of "indefinite" will hold it until released.
