The Alerts Service Protocol allows a protocol client to list and delete alert subscriptions. Alert subscriptions specify when and how notifications are sent to users when changes are made to content stored on the server. The protocol does not specify the creation or editing of alert subscriptions.
Sections 1.8, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative and can contain the terms MAY, SHOULD, MUST, MUST NOT, and SHOULD NOT as defined in RFC 2119. Sections 1.5 and 1.9 are also normative but cannot contain those terms. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
