The IESG contact persons are Adam Roach, Alexey Melnikov and Barry Leiba. A URL of this Internet Draft is: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-cbor-sequence/
Technical Summary This document describes how a sequence of CBOR objects can be transmitted in an environment that uses media types. A CBOR sequence is not a legal CBOR object. The document also defines a structured syntax for allowing generic parsing of CBOR sequences using "+cbor-seq". Working Group Summary There was some discussion about the need to define this data structure as it can be done by the use of an indefinite array. The consensus of the working group was that this would be a useful item to have. Document Quality The document is simple and understandable. I have seen code for one implementation of CBOR Sequences and it appeared to match the document from a brief reading of the code. All of the registrations have been sent to the appropriate review mailing list and there has been no returned comments. Personnel The Document Shepherd is Jim Schaad. The Responsible Area Director is Alexey Melnikov.
