Charter for Working Group


The SIEVE email filtering language is specified in RFC 5228, together
with a number of extensions.

The SIEVE working group is being re-chartered to:

(1) Finish work on existing in-progress Working Group documents:
(a) External lists (draft-ietf-sieve-external-lists)
(b) Notify SIP (draft-ietf-sieve-notify-sip-message)
(c) RegEx (draft-ietf-sieve-regex)
(d) Include/multi-script (draft-ietf-sieve-include)
(e) Sieve in IMAP (draft-ietf-sieve-imap-sieve)

(2) Finalize and publish the following SIEVE extensions as proposed
standards:
(a) General Auto-reply (draft-george-sieve-autoreply)
(b) Notify presence (draft-george-sieve-notify-presence)
(c) Vacation time (draft-george-sieve-vacation-time)
(d) Convert messages (draft-melnikov-sieve-convert)

Additional drafts may be added to this list, but only via a charter
revision. There must also be demonstrable willingness in the SIEVE
development community to actually implement a given extension before it
can be added to this charter.

(3) Work on a specification for iCalendar and vCard extraction, and
cooperate with the VCARDDAV WG for address book tests in Sieve.

(4) Work on a specification to describe how EAI/IDN issues should be
handled in SIEVE.

(5) Work on a "Benefits of SIEVE" guide for client and server vendors
that:
(a) Describes the SIEVE protocol and its suite of extensions.
(b) Explains the benefits of server-side filtering in practical terms.
(c) Shows how client-side filtering can be migrated to SIEVE.

(6) Produce one or more informational RFCs containing a set of test
scripts and test email messages that are to be filtered by the scripts,
and the expected results of that filtering. This will serve as the basis
of a interoperability test suite to help determine the suitability of
moving the base specification and selected extensions to Draft status.
