Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <email@example.com> To: IETF-Announce <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <email@example.com>, RFC Editor <firstname.lastname@example.org>, iptel mailing list <email@example.com>, iptel chair <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Protocol Action: 'The Internet Assigned Number Authority (IANA) tel Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) Parameter Registry' to Proposed Standard The IESG has approved the following document: - 'The Internet Assigned Number Authority (IANA) tel Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) Parameter Registry ' <draft-ietf-iptel-tel-reg-07.txt> as a Proposed Standard This document is the product of the IP Telephony Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Jon Peterson and Cullen Jennings. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-iptel-tel-reg-07.txt
Technical Summary This document is a procedural specification that defines a new IANA registry for parameters to the tel URI (RFC 3966). RFC 3966 allowed extensions to the tel URI through new URI parameters, or new values to previously defined parameters. However, it created no registry for such parameters. Several extensions have since been defined for the tel URI, including trunk groups (draft-ietf-iptel-trunk-group), number portability (RFC 4694) and ENUM dip indicator (RFC 4759). Additional drafts have appeared proposing further extensions. To ensure that there are no overlap of values, and to provide a simple place for developers to find the meaning of these new parameters, this document defines an IANA registry and populates it with values from the existing specifications that pre-date the creation of the registry. Working Group Summary The draft is a charter item of the IP Telephony (iptel) working group, and is targeted for Proposed Standard. It updates the tel URI specification (RFC 3966) as well as several tel URI extensions. It was adopted as a working group item in December 2005 and discussed on the mailing list since its creation. Protocol Quality This specification was reviewed for the IESG by Jon Peterson. Jonathan Rosenberg is the document shepherd. Gen-ART review was provided by Brian Carpenter. The specification has received discussion by all of the authors of the specifications whose parameters are registered. It has also received review by an expert in IANA registry procedures.
