Technical summary: The document defines extensions to the SDP offer/answer model to enable file transfer as part of SDP-negotiated multimedia sessions. It also specifies using MSRP for the actual file transmission. Working Group summary: The MMUSIC WG has firm consenses on publishing this document as Proposed Standard. Document quality: The document is considered ready for publication. An early interoperability test of independent implementations from various major vendors on an image sharing specification (which uses the file transfer I-D as a basis) took place already in 2007 under the auspices of the GSM Association. The interop event provided useful input for this and other specifications. Personnel: The document shepherd is Joerg Ott, the responsible AD is Cullen Jennings.
