Description of Working Group:

The SIEVE email filtering language is specified in RFC 5228,  
together with a number of extensions.

The SIEVE working group is being re-chartered to:

(1) Finish work on existing in-progress Working Group documents:

        (a) Notify mailto (draft-ietf-sieve-notify-mailto.txt)
        (b) Edit header (draft-ietf-sieve-editheader-10.txt)
        (c) Mime loops (draft-ietf-sieve-mime-loop-04.txt)
        (d) Refuse/reject (draft-ietf-sieve-refuse-reject-06.txt)

(2) Finalize and publish the following SIEVE extensions as proposed  

        (a) iHave (draft-freed-sieve-ihave-02.txt)
        (b) Notary (draft-freed-sieve-notary-01.txt)
        (c) SIEVE in XML (draft-freed-sieve-in-xml-01.txt)
        (d) Notify-sip (draft-melnikov-sieve-notify-sip-message-01.txt)
        (e) ManageSIEVE (draft-martin-managesieve-10.txt)
        (f) RegEx (draft-ietf-sieve-regex-00.txt)
        (g) Meta-data (draft-melnikov-sieve-imapext-metadata-04.txt)
        (h) Include/multi-script (draft-daboo-sieve-include-05.txt)
        (i) Address data (draft-melnikov-sieve-external-lists-01)

Additional drafts may be added to this list, but only via a charter
revision. There must also be demonstrable willingness in the SIEVE
development community to actually implement a given extension before
it can be added to this charter.

(3) Work on a specification to describe how EAI/IDN issues should be  
handled in SIEVE.

(4) Work on a "Benefits of SIEVE" guide for client and server  
vendors that:
        (a) Describes the SIEVE protocol and its suite of extensions.
        (b) Explains the benefits of server-side filtering in practical  
        (c) Shows how client-side filtering can be migrated to SIEVE.

(5) Produce one or more informational RFCs containing a set of test  
scripts and test email messages that are to be filtered by the  
scripts, and the expected results of that filtering. This will serve  
as the basis of a interoperability test suite to help determine the  
suitability of moving the base specification and selected extensions  
to Draft status.
