                     29: <p>
                     30: Cockatoo is a project about
                     31: implementing <acronym title="Session Initiation Protocol">SIP</acronym>/<acronym title="SIP for Instant Messaging and Presence Leveraging Extensions">SIMPLE</acronym> as an extension for Thunderbird (XPCOM
                     32: component/XUL interface) that enables users to phone contacts and see
                     33: their presence state.
                     34: </p>
                     35: <p>
                     36: Cockatoo is implemented by <a href="">Filip Dal&uuml;ge</a>
                     37: as part of Google's <a href="">Summer of Code</a>. It is mentored by Brian King of <a href="">MozDev</a> and makes use of the <a href="">Zap</a> SIP stack.

                     40: <p>
                     41: Users shall be able to do a phone call by one
                     42: click out of their address book and to reply to emails by phone call. To
                     43: put this into practice, the open standards SIP, SDP, RTP as well as audio codecs
                     44: have to be implemented. These functionalities will be included into Thunderbird
                     45: as an XPCOM component.
                     46: </p>
                     47: <p>
                     48: On top of this component, an XUL interface will be set up that does
                     49: several tasks:

1.14      astrapi    52: <li>Creating a basic standalone interface for accessing URIs of type <cite>tel</cite> and <cite>sip</cite>. These can be accessed by entering it directly or choosing an address from an address book sidebar.</li>
                     53: <li>Including a field "SIP address" to Thunderbird's address book cards. Email addresses will be mapped to corresponding SIP addresses so that a sender of an email with a known SIP address can be contacted directly.</li>
                     54: <li>Displaying the presence state of email senders using the <var>SUBSCRIBE</var>/<var>NOTIFY</var> extensions of SIP defined in <a href="" title="A Presence Event Package for the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)">RFC 3856</a>. Any other SIMPLE services like <var>MESSAGE</var> (defined in <a href="" title="Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Extension for Instant Messaging">RFC 3428</a>) should be implemented at a later time.</li>
                     55: <li>Enabling the user to call persons from several interfaces of Mozilla Thunderbird like the address book or recieved emails if there is a known sender.</li>

                     61: <h3>Motivation</h3>
                     62: <p>
                     63: SIP is the most used open standard for telecommunication over IP, it is
                     64: standarized by <a href="">RFC 3261</a>. As more
                     65: and more devices like notebooks carry microphones and a permanent
                     66: internet connection with them (WLAN), it is to be expected that users
                     67: will want to use their existing environment for phoning as well.
                     68: </p>
                     69: <p>
                     70: Especially the last mentioned feature (calling by click using the
                     71: address book) is an extremely useful capability, as address books of
                     72: many Thunderbird users already contain phone numbers. These ordinary
                     73: phone numbers can be called over a SIP provider's gateway.
