From: The IESG <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: IETF-Announce <email@example.com> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <firstname.lastname@example.org>, RFC Editor <email@example.com>, simple mailing list <firstname.lastname@example.org>, simple chair <email@example.com> Subject: Protocol Action: 'A Data Model for Presence' to Proposed Standard The IESG has approved the following document: - 'A Data Model for Presence ' <draft-ietf-simple-presence-data-model-08.txt> as a Proposed Standard This document is the product of the SIP for Instant Messaging and Presence Leveraging Extensions Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Ted Hardie and Jon Peterson. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-simple-presence-data-model-08.txt
Technical Summary This document builds on the model defined in RFC 2778 clarifying the underlying presence data model used by Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) for Instant Messaging Leveraging Presence Extensions (SIMPLE) presence agents. In particular, the document clarifies what a tuple models and provides guidance on mapping real-world communications systems into a presence document. Working Group Summary This document has been through many extensive working group discussions. It reflects well forged compromise, and a strong working group consensus. Protocol Quality Hisham Khartabil was the PROTO shepherd for this document. Ted Hardie reviewed the document for the IESG. Interoperable exchange of presence documents based on this model has been seen at several of the SIP Interoperability Test Events (SIPITs).
