    Subject: Protocol Action: 'Full-mode Fax Profile for Internet Mail:
    FFPIM' to Proposed Standard

    The IESG has approved the following document:

    - 'Full-mode Fax Profile for Internet Mail: FFPIM '
       <draft-ietf-fax-ffpim-08.txt> as a Proposed Standard

    This document is the product of the Internet Fax Working Group.

    The IESG contact persons are Scott Hollenbeck and Ted Hardie.

    Technical Summary
    Classic facsimile document exchange represents both a set of
    technical specifications and a class of service. Previous work has
    replicated some of that service class as a profile within Internet
    mail. The current specification defines "full mode" carriage of
    facsimile data over the Internet, building upon that previous work
    and adding the remaining functionality necessary for achieving
    reliability and capability negotiation for Internet mail, on a par
    with classic T.30 facsimile. These additional features are designed
    to provide the highest level of interoperability with the
    standards-compliant email infrastructure and mail user agents, while
    providing a level of service that approximates what is currently
    enjoyed by fax users.

    Working Group Summary
    The FAX working group reached consensus to advance the document.
    There were no issues raised during IETF last call.
    Protocol Quality
    Scott Hollenbeck has reviewed the specification for the IESG.
