    Subject: Protocol Action: 'File Format for Internet Fax' to Draft

    The IESG has approved the following documents:

    - 'Tag Image File Format (TIFF) - image/tiff MIME Sub-type Registration '
      RFC 3302 as a Draft Standard
    - 'File Format for Internet Fax '
       <draft-ietf-fax-tiff-fx-14.txt> as a Draft Standard
    - 'Tag Image File Format Fax eXtended (TIFF-FX) - image/tiff-fx MIME
       Registration '
       <draft-ietf-fax-tiff-fx-reg-v2-01.txt> as a Draft Standard

    These documents are products of the Internet Fax Working Group.

    The IESG contact persons are Scott Hollenbeck and Ted Hardie.

    Technical Summary
    This document is a revised version of RFC 2301. The revisions are
    based on discussions and suggestions for improvements that have
    been made since RFC 2301 was issued in March 1998, and on the
    results of independent implementations and interoperability testing.

    This RFC 2301 revision describes the TIFF (Tag Image File Format)
    representation of image data specified by the ITU-T Recommendations
    for black-and-white and color facsimile. This file format
    specification is commonly known as TIFF-FX. It formally defines
    minimal, extended and lossless JBIG profiles (Profiles S, F, J) for
    black-and-white fax, and base JPEG, lossless JBIG and Mixed Raster
    Content profiles (Profiles C, L, M) for color and grayscale fax.
    These profiles correspond to the content of the applicable ITU-T
    Recommendations. In addition, two MIME sub-type registration
    documents are part of this request for advancement to draft standard:

    draft-ietf-fax-tiff-fx-reg-v2 (image/tiff-fx) updates RFC 3250.
    RFC 3302 (image/tiff).
    Working Group Summary
    These documents are products of the Internet Fax Working Group. There
    has been an ongoing discussion about the validity of the implementation
    testing, specifically to confirm that at least two independent
    implementations of Profile M have been developed and demonstrated.
    Protocol Quality
    These documents have been reviewed for the IESG by Scott Hollenbeck.
    Implementation reports can be found on the IETF web site:
