Description of Working Group:

    A personal address book (PAB) contains a read/write copy of attributes
    describing a user's interpersonal contacts. This is distinct from a
    directory which contains a primarily read-only copy of users within an
    organization. While these two data objects share a large number of
    common attributes, their use and access patterns are fundamentally
    different. The IETF has a standards-track data format (vCard 4.0) and an
    access protocol (CardDAV) for the interchange of both PABs and user
    directory entry data objects.

    Having completed its work on the base vCard and CardDAV specifications,
    the VCARDDAV working group currently focuses on extensions to those two
    technologies. In particular, the WG will complete the following work:

    (1) A limited set of extensions to vCard (and its XML representation) as
    well as to CardDAV. Extensions are accepted for group consideration
    based on normal IETF consensus rules and in consultation with the
    responsible Area Director.

    (2) A lossless mapping between LDAP and vCard 4.0.
