[RFC5727] described processes for evolving and maintaining the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) [RFC3261] and related technologies in the former Real-time Application and Infrastructure (RAI) area. These processes are collectively known as the "SIP Change Process". While areas do not normally have "charters" per se, RFC 5727 effectively served as a charter for RAI. The language in RFC 5727 was tightly bound to the RAI area and to the DISPATCH and SIPCORE working groups.

         DISPATCH-Style Working Groups and the SIP Change Process


   RFC 5727 defined several processes for the former Real-time    Applications and Infrastructure (RAI) area.  These processes include    the evolution of the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and related    protocols, as well as the operation of the DISPATCH and SIPCORE    working groups.  This document updates RFC 5727 to allow flexibility    for the area and working group structure, while preserving the SIP    change processes.  It also generalizes the DISPATCH working group    processes so that they can be easily adopted by other working groups.
