[ietf-provreg] Services messages in RFC 3730
Title: Services messages in RFC 3730
I believe the current text describing who receives service messages in RFC 3730 is too strict. The text that I'm referring to reads:
Service messages MUST be created for all clients affected by an action on an object. For example, <transfer> actions MUST be reported to both the client that requests an object transfer and the client that has the authority to approve or reject the transfer request.
This means that the client making the request also receives a poll message even through the client receives the same information in the response and can receive the same information with a transfer query.
I would prefer that the text read like the following:
Service messages MUST be created for all clients affected by an action on an object that did not directly execute the action. For example, <transfer> actions MUST be reported to both the client that requests an object transfer and the client that has the authority to approve or reject the transfer request for a server action.
Based on the update text, the client that MUST receive a poll message for each transfer operation is below (requesting client is the client that executed the transfer request and the owning client is the current owning client of the object):
- Transfer Request – owning client
- Transfer Approve –requesting client
- Transfer Reject – requesting client
- Transfer Cancel – owning client
- Transfer Auto Approve – owning client and requesting client
- Transfer Auto Reject – owning client and requesting client
