Subject: DELTA-V: IETF-44 Brief Summary

The Web Versioning and Configuration Management, or DELTA-V BOF meeting was
held on Wednesday, March 17, 1999, from 13:00 to 15:00.  Jim Amsden chaired
the meeting, with Jim Whitehead recording notes.  Approximately 65 people
were in attendance.

The meeting began with a presentation by Jim Amsden on the proposed charter
for the DELTA-V working group (charters were handed out to all attendees
before the start of the meeting).  Following this presentation, there was
open discussion on the scope of the working group, which was
non-contentious.  At the end of the discussion period, Jim asked for a show
of hands for people who thought the IETF should have a working group in this
area, and appx. 25-30 people raised their hands.  When the attendees were
asked to voice any objections they had to such a working gorup being formed,
noone made any comments.

For the remainder of the meeting, Chris Kaler gave an overview of the
concepts and preliminary design that has been developed by a WebDAV WG
design team investigating a versioning and configuration management
protocol.  There was significant Q&A between the audience and members of the
design team.
