I've posted draft-ietf-sieve-managesieve-00.txt yesterday.
It has some relatively minor changes from draft-martin-managesieve-12.txt:

1). Addition of the WARNINGS response code (as per comment from Stephan Bosch) 2). Addition of the MAXREDIRECTS capability (as per discussion on the mailing list)
3). Updates/fixes to some examples (as per Chris Newman's review, etc.)
4). Added IANA registrations of some missing response codes

I only have 2 open issues outstanding:

1). Update to Sieve URL scheme based on Chris Newman's proposal. Based on the discussion on the mailing list I believe there is rough consensus to make the change, i.e. to add "authorized user" just before the script name, but it would be optional. I will send a separate message on this so that it is clear to everyone what change I will be implementing.

2). Stephan Bosch suggested that some deployments would like to have script verification mode, without allowing SASL ANONYMOUS. I.e. only to allow script verification by registered users of the service (SASL ANONYMOUS would allow *any* user, even not registered on the system, to perform script validation). ManageSieve used to have such mode by allowing the empty string as the script name in PUTSCRIPT, but it was taken out, because I felt at the time that SASL ANONYMOUS was a cleaner design. Now that I understand that the two mechanisms have different applicability, I would like to hear WG opinion on this issue.
