IETF SIP WG Response to OMA LS 178 on XCAP diff-event
|From Contact||Dean Willis|
The IETF SIP working group thanks the OMA PAG working group for communicating with us in regards to PAG's requirements for an XCAP event package. A design team met in an ad-hoc session during IETF 68, and reached the conclusion that a more general solution to the problem of change reporting on XCAP documents than that provided by the current SIPPING config framework draft would be desirable. The team achieved consensus on working from the document draft-urpalainen-sip-xcap-diff-event-01 as baseline text. It has not yet been determined by the IETF leadership as to which working group will develop this event package, but current indicators are that this would be within the scope of the SIPPING working group, and that initial editorial work will be provided in large part by Jari Urpalienen. The largest open issue with this work appears to be related to the initial synchronization phase. Questions related to this were raised by Jari on the SIP mailing list on April 25. The SIP working group would like to encourage OMA PAG to participate in this discussion on the SIP mailing list and to consider whether the limitations of the current mechanism as discussed by Jari are acceptable for PAG's requirements.
