The IESG has received a request from the Concise Binary Object Representation
Maintenance and Extensions WG (cbor) to consider the following document: -
'Concise Binary Object Representation (CBOR)'
  <draft-ietf-cbor-7049bis-14.txt> as Internet Standard

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits final
comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the mailing lists by 2020-08-14. Exceptionally, comments may
be sent to instead. In either case, please retain the beginning
of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


   The Concise Binary Object Representation (CBOR) is a data format
   whose design goals include the possibility of extremely small code
   size, fairly small message size, and extensibility without the need
   for version negotiation.  These design goals make it different from
   earlier binary serializations such as ASN.1 and MessagePack.

   This document is a revised edition of RFC 7049, with editorial
   improvements, added detail, and fixed errata.  This revision formally
   obsoletes RFC 7049, while keeping full compatibility of the
   interchange format from RFC 7049.  It does not create a new version
   of the format.
