I'm just trying to find out if anyone knows anything more about the current
state of the notify extension. Looking from the list archive I can see this
was first announced on 03 Jul 2001:
A couple of good points re $from$ vs $from-address$ vs $from-name$ and QP
and charset decoding were raised here:
And there was tentative agreement on many of these issues from the original
draft author stating that he'd create a new one.
Though there didn't appear to have been another draft forth coming, and
searching the list, almost no discussion on the "notify" extension since
then, apart from a similar "what's up" email here:
So it seems we have an original draft, comments about problems, and even
agreement by the original author, but no followup as yet :(
I'm wondering what the general process for going forward and creating
another draft with some of these issues addressed? I think that having a
non-decoded text/* part in an arbitrary character set will be somewhere
between annoying and useless, and the separated $from-address$ and
$from-name$ variables would be very useful.
Is there anyone interested in/able to create a new draft? If not, I'd be
willing to do it, but I'm not entirely sure of the process of taking over
and going forward with this.
