The IESG has approved the following document:
- 'T.140 Real-time Text Conversation over WebRTC Data Channels'
  (draft-ietf-mmusic-t140-usage-data-channel-13.txt) as Proposed Standard

This document is the product of the Multiparty Multimedia Session Control
Working Group.

The IESG contact persons are Murray Kucherawy and Barry Leiba.

Technical Summary:

The document specifies how a WebRTC data channel can be used as a transport mechanism for Real-time text using the ITU-T Protocol for multimedia application text conversation (Recommendation ITU-T T.140), and how the SDP offer/answer mechanism can be used to negotiate such data channel, referred to as T.140 data channel.  The document updates RFC 8373.

Working Group Summary:

No controversy or other concerns. The document has progressed remarkably quickly in the WG, while at the same time seen good discussion and participation from several people. 

Document Quality:

There are existing implementations of the WebRTC data channels, however we are not aware of implementations for the T.140 data channel usage

Gunnar Hellström provided very good comments and input

Additional expert reviews are not needed.
