The IETF makes heavy use of email lists to conduct its work.  This
often involves accessing the archived history of those email lists.
Participants would like to have the ability to browse and search
those archives using standard IMAP clients.  This memo captures the
requirements for providing a service that would allow such browsing
and searching, and it is intended as input to a later activity for
the design and development of such a service.

INFORMATIONAL: This memo provides information for the Internet community.
It does not specify an Internet standard of any kind. Distribution of
this memo is unlimited.

This announcement is sent to the IETF-Announce and rfc-dist lists.
