The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Indicating Email Handling States in Trace Fields' (draft-ietf-appsawg-received-state-04.txt) as Proposed Standard This document is the product of the Applications Area Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Barry Leiba and Pete Resnick. A URL of this Internet Draft is: http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-appsawg-received-state/ Technical Summary This document registers a trace field clause for use in indicating transitions between handling queues or processing states, including enacting inter- and intra-host message transitions. This might include message quarantining, mailing list moderation, timed delivery, queueing for further analysis, content conversion, or other similar causes, as well as optionally identifying normal handling queues. This allows inspection of the trace information to reveal that the cause for a time gap in trace fields was an imposed delay rather than one caused by transient technical difficulties. Working Group Summary The WG discussed appropriate IANA procedure for the new registry created by the document. The WG was deciding between Expert Review and FCFS. Consensus was a rough on this one. Otherwise the document is really non controversial. Document Quality There is at least one existing implementation of this specification. At least two more are planned. No special purpose reviews are needed for this document. Personnel Alexey Melnikov is the document shepherd. Barry Leiba is the responsible AD.
