        Change Process for the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)
         and the Real-time Applications and Infrastructure Area

Abstract

   This memo documents a process intended to organize the future
   development of the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and related work
   in the Real-time Applications and Infrastructure (RAI) Area.  As the
   environments in which SIP is deployed grow more numerous and diverse,
   modifying or extending SIP in certain ways may threaten the
   interoperability and security of the protocol; however, the IETF
   process must also cater to the realities of existing deployments and
   serve the needs of the implementers working with SIP.  This document
   therefore defines the functions of two long-lived working groups in
   the RAI Area that are, respectively, responsible for the maintenance
   of the core SIP specifications and the development of new efforts to
   extend and apply work in this space.  This document obsoletes RFC
   3427.
