On the telecon a day or so ago there was some interest in the BOF on RESCAP
or Resolution Capabilities Discovery... the attempt to take CONNEG
principals to the general case of users and devices on the net.

Some ID's have already shown up on how this might look ..see attached.

The ML for the group is:

Send a message to rescap-request@cs.utk.edu asking to subscribe.

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

Title : Rescap Profile for Mail User Agents
Author(s) : P. Hoffman
Filename : draft-hoffman-rescap-mua-00.txt
Pages : 5
Date : 24-Mar-99

This document defines a profile of the rescap protocol for mail user
agents (MUAs) and mail recipients. It describes the attributes that a
mail sender might want or need to know about a particular mail recipient
before sending a message.

The attributes are divided into four general categories:
- MIME handling
- OpenPGP
- General

Note: this list is very preliminary. The process of defining the
requirements for rescap has just begun. Because the rescap protocol has
not even had a first draft, it is likely that there will be many
significant changes to this draft in the future as rescap gets worked
