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>, rohc mailing list <email@example.com>, rohc chair <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Protocol Action: 'Applying Signaling Compression (SigComp) to the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)' to Proposed Standard The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Applying Signaling Compression (SigComp) to the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) ' <draft-ietf-rohc-sigcomp-sip-09.txt> as a Proposed Standard This document is the product of the Robust Header Compression Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Magnus Westerlund and Lars Eggert. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-rohc-sigcomp-sip-09.txt
Technical Summary This document describes some specifics that apply when Signaling Compression (SigComp) is applied to the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), such as default minimum values of SigComp parameters, compartment and state management, and a few issues on SigComp over TCP. Any implementation of SigComp for use with SIP must conform to this document, in addition to SigComp and support of the SIP and Session Description Protocol (SDP) static dictionary. Working Group Summary This document has been in the workings for several years, and it has been given the time needed to make it mature. The document has been carefully reviewed by both the WG and various other SIP and SigComp experts, and there is WG consensus that the document should now be published as an RFC. Document Quality There are several independent implementers of SigComp, and they have collectively developed the content of this specification, based on running code experience. Personnel Document Sheperd for this document is Lars-Erik Jonsson, and Magnus Westerlund is the Responsible Area Director.
