Hi,

I attended the other day a coordination call with the IETF, presenting
them the ongoing work of this task force as in many ways, it overlaps
with some of the work that has happened or will happen in IETF.

The following points were discussed/evoked:
 * I asked whether the results of the work on Open Pluggable Edge
Services (OPES) in general, and its application to HTTP in particular
could be relevant and used by our group:
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4236.txt
While it does seem relevant, the impression I got from the call was that
it wasn't really deployed at this time, so may not be really useful in a
"best practice" approach; it might still be worth the time of someone in
this task force to review it in more depth

 * the approach of relying the HTTP Cache-Control parameters sounded
very appropriate to the IETF representative on the call

 * there is some ongoing discussions about starting the HTTP Working
Group anew at the IETF, mostly to fix bugs in the current RFC; should it
be so, it would probably be a good idea to have them review our
guidelines document - at the very least at last call time; it may be
even a good idea to try to get a review of the requirements document
beforehand.

Hope this helps,

Dom
