Technical Summary

 This document defines the XML representation of the vCard data
  format for representing and exchanging a variety of information
  about individuals and other entities (e.g., formatted and structured
  name and delivery addresses, email address, multiple telephone
  numbers, photograph, logo, audio clips, etc.).

Working Group Summary

  This document is a product of VCARDDAV WG.

  The document was nearly done around August 2010.  Some late
  comments were received after that, asking for better alignment of
  the vCard 4.0 format with "hCard" and "PoCo" (Portable Contacts)
  formats. Most of the suggestions were applied, modulo removal of
  some properties for which there was no WG consensus to remove

Document Quality

  The document was reviewed by multiple VCARDDAV WG participants.
  Other groups like the XSF depend on this format and are willing to
  to implement/deploy the XML mapping of vCard 4.0.

  The two-week media type review was completed on
  ietf-types@iana.org mailing list.  It was requested on April 7th 2011:

  Several implementers expressed desire to implement the spec.
  Some communities like XSF (see
  <http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0292.html>) are also referencing this


  The Document Shepherd is Alexey Melnikov.

  The Responsible Area Director is Peter Saint-Andre.
