Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <email@example.com> To: IETF-Announce <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: RFC Editor <email@example.com> Subject: Document Action: 'The application/zlib and application/gzip media types' to Informational RFC (draft-levine-application-gzip-03.txt) The IESG has approved the following document: - 'The application/zlib and application/gzip media types' (draft-levine-application-gzip-03.txt) as Informational RFC This document has been reviewed in the IETF but is not the product of an IETF Working Group. The IESG contact person is Pete Resnick. A URL of this Internet Draft is: http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-levine-application-gzip/
Technical Summary This document defines the 'application/gzip' and 'application/zlib' media types for compressed data using the gzip and zlib compression formats. Working Group Summary This document is not the product of a WG. However, it has gotten review by several people well-versed in MIME, including the Expert Reviewer for the media types registry. Document Quality There are many applications that have used these media types, but they have never been formally registered. This registration fills an obvious hole. As noted above, several reviewers, including the appropriate Expert Review reviewer, were satisfied with the document. The document was reviewed on the ietf-types mailing list as well. Personnel Pete Resnick is the responsible AD. RFC Editor Note ADs have pointed out inconsistent capitalization of the term "zlib" in the document, and use of references of the form "Section [named-section]", which might be difficult to read. The RFC Editor should address these as it sees fit within its own editorial policy.
