Hi all,


Today during the call of the Request for a Transition to CR: API for 
Media Resources 1.0

the Director has rejected the transition due to our response  to the 
following issue:
use of HTTP 501

http://www.w3.org/2006/02/lc-comments-tracker/42786/WD-mediaont-api-1.0-20100608/2556?cid=2556

the MAWG response

------------

Dear Matthew,

thank you very much for reviewing our document. Please excuse the delay 
in answering your request. We have discussed this issue during the 12th 
Face-to-Face meeting and agreed that the 501 status code does not fit 
our needs. In order to have a clear semantic, we have decided to declare 
our own status code, as follows:

- Numerical Code: 562
- Textual description: Property not supported
- Example: only a subset of GET methods for properties implemented

---------------------------------


The Director says that we should have agreement from the people of the 
HTTP spec as we declare our own status code 562

We must solve this issue before moving the spec forward.


Also, because the Transition to PR: Ontology for Media Resources 1.0 was 
conditioned on API Transition to CR, the Ontology Transition is also 
rejected.
