Nope, it's here:
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/ietf-http-wg/2007AprJun/0132.html>

Regarding that Digest work, I have since improved it based on feedback
I got. In particular, Phillip Hallam-Baker's comments were right on
the mark.

The new and improved version is pretty good (and blogged long ago).
Doing the right thing, and thus meeting the very sane requirements
given in Sam Hartman's draft, is a task prone to ratholes of the
non-technical variety. It also attracts volume-oriented participants.
