Re: I-D ACTION:draft-ietf-sieve-notify-07.txt
A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts
Barry and I recently submitted -07. We believe this version addresses
all issues brought up during WGLC.
This draft is a work item of the Sieve Mail Filtering Language Working Group of the IETF.
Title : Sieve Extension: Notifications
Author(s) : A. Melnikov, et al.
Filename : draft-ietf-sieve-notify-07.txt
Pages : 18
Date : 2007-2-21
Users go to great lengths to be notified as quickly as possible that
they have received new mail. Most of these methods involve polling
to check for new messages periodically. A push method handled by the
final delivery agent gives users quicker notifications and saves
server resources. This document does not specify the notification
method but it is expected that using existing instant messaging
infrastructure such as XMPP, or SMS messages will be popular. This
draft describes an extension to the Sieve mail filtering language
that allows users to give specific rules for how and when
notifications should be sent.

I would like to issue an additional 1 week WGLC on this version of the
In particular, I would like to bring people's attention to the following
1). New notify_method_capability test.
2). One major editorial change is the removal of extract_text test, as
per WG discussion. The replacement test or action is more likely to move
to the MIME loops document, but this decision is not final.
3). Regarding describing interaction of the notify action parameters
with URI parameters in the method parameter: Looking through comments
received during WGLC, I found no single agreeable solution. Pretty much
everybody wanted different behavior. So sieve-notify was updated to list
available choices, but not prescribe any specific behavior, which is
left up to specifications describing notification methods. Once the new
Sieve notify is deployed and we get some implementation experience with
different notification methods, some consensus might emerge. At which
point sieve-notify-bis can prescribe a specific behavior.
