Subject: Protocol Action: 'Middlebox Communications (MIDCOM)  Protocol
Semantics' to Proposed Standard

The IESG has approved the following document:

- 'Middlebox Communications (MIDCOM) Protocol Semantics '
   <draft-ietf-midcom-rfc3989-bis-02.txt> as a Proposed Standard

This document is the product of the Middlebox Communication Working
Group. 

The IESG contact persons are Magnus Westerlund and Lars Eggert.

A URL of this Internet-Draft is:
http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-midcom-rfc3989-bis-02.txt

Technical Summary
 
   This memo specifies semantics for a Middlebox Communication (MIDCOM)
   protocol to be used by MIDCOM agents for interacting with middleboxes
   such as firewalls and Network Address Translators (NATs).  The
   semantics discussion does not include any specification of a concrete
   syntax or a transport protocol. However the implementation of the
   sematics in draft-ietf-midcom-mib does require the sematics
   description as normative reference. Therefore the semantics
   declaration is reclassified from informational to proposed standard.


Working Group Summary
 
   There is consensus in the WG to reclassify this document to proposed
   standard to provide the necessary normative language for
   draft-ietf-midcom-mib.
 
Protocol Quality
 
   Magnus Westerlund reveiwed the document for IESG. The memo was
   published as RFC 3989 with informational status and has then been
   somewhat modified to make it more suitable as proposed standard.
