From: The IESG <email@example.com> To: IETF-Announce <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: RFC Editor <email@example.com> Subject: Protocol Action: 'JSON Patch' to Proposed Standard (draft-ietf-appsawg-json-patch-10.txt) The IESG has approved the following document: - 'JSON Patch' (draft-ietf-appsawg-json-patch-10.txt) as Proposed Standard This document is the product of the Applications Area Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Barry Leiba and Pete Resnick. A URL of this Internet Draft is: http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-appsawg-json-patch/
Technical Summary JSON Patch defines the media type "application/json-patch", a JSON document structure for expressing a sequence of operations to apply to a JSON document. Working Group Summary This draft and its companion (draft-ietf-appsawg-json-pointer) received commentary from a number of participants. The original author was unable to complete the work so the current editor stepped in. There was no controversy of import, and the subset of Applications Area participants who have reviewed and commented on this document is large enough and the reviews are broad enough that we have good consensus on this. Document Quality Many of the participants who contributed review comments are well established in the IETF and W3C communities. The review and participation was thorough and contained adequate (if not better) expertise on the relevant topics. Implementations are being tracked at http://trac.tools.ietf.org/wg/appsawg/trac/wiki/JsonPatch. Personnel Murray Kucherawy is the Document Shepherd. Barry Leiba is the responsible Area Director. RFC Editor Note Please change all instances of "application/json-patch" to "application/json-patch+json", and also change "Subtype name: json-patch" to "Subtype name: json-patch+json". IANA Note This document registers a new media type using the template found in Section 10 of RFC4288. RFC4288 is about to be replaced by draft-ietf-appsawg-media-type-regs, which is in the RFC Editor queue. The registration template is slightly different in the new version. We ask IANA to handle this situation during the transition. Note that the name is being changed to "application/json-patch+json".
