I just posted a new Internet Draft titled "Calendaring Interoperability
over HTTP (CIH)". This document describes (in fairly vague terms for
now) how calendaring and scheduling systems could communicate with each
other using HTTP. A URL for the Internet-Draft is:
ftp://ds.internic.net/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-calsch-cih-00.txt

I would REALLY appreciate it if some folks with more HTTP expertise than
I could review the document and get me comments. Or, even better, send
the comments to ietf-calendar@imc.org, the mailing list for the calsch
WG.

Basically, we need a way to exchange MIME objects (of the new
text/calendar type) over a TCP connection. It seems better to use a
good, solid, and well-supported protocol like HTTP than to invent our
own.

Thanks,
