Technical Summary:
This document defines a set of extensions to the iCalendar VALARM component to enhance use of alarms and improve interoperability between clients and servers.

Working Group Summary:
Nothing to be noted; the document got few reviews on the list, but the specification benefits from existing deployments and discussion internal at calconnect as well as during the joint ietf/calconnect meetings. 

Document Quality:
The document came as pretty mature and only minor comments have been provided on the mailing list. The extension seems to benefit from experiences of it being deployed and the authors are well representative of that experience as well as th eability for the extension to provide interoprability. 
The extension has also been discussed on joint calconnect/IETF meetings.
