The IESG has received a request from the SIP Common Log Format WG
(sipclf) to consider the following document:
- 'The Common Log Format (CLF) for the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP):
   Framework and Data Model'
  <draft-ietf-sipclf-problem-statement-11.txt> as Proposed Standard

A previous version of this document was Last Called with an Informational
intended publication status. Issues with the document's scope and technical 
concerns with internationalization were identified during IESG evaluation and 
the document was returned to the working group.

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
ietf@ietf.org mailing lists by 2012-12-17. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to iesg@ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


   Well-known web servers such as Apache and web proxies like Squid
   support event logging using a common log format.  The logs produced
   using these de-facto standard formats are invaluable to system
   administrators for trouble-shooting a server and tool writers to
   craft tools that mine the log files and produce reports and trends.
   Furthermore, these log files can also be used to train anomaly
   detection systems and feed events into a security event management
   system.  The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) does not have a common
   log format, and as a result, each server supports a distinct log
   format that makes it unnecessarily complex to produce tools to do
   trend analysis and security detection.  We propose a common log file
   format for SIP servers that can be used uniformly by user agents,
   proxies, registrars, redirect servers as well as back-to-back user
