Hi,

Adding the granular aspect is very useful. My suggestion is to simply add a reason attribute to give the additional details. I am concerned with possible too many layers. You have 3 levels with this proposal, general error, http error and http response code. Or maybe I misunderstood.

The question is what can be done with the error reason. Does it need to be formalized so the application can take different actions based on reason or is it simply to facilitate support. I believe the intention is the later, simply facilitate support. So simply a string and not necessarily code is needed.

Regards,
JanL

This is a great start. The backwards compatibility is good.

Should we reference to the IETF protocol documents which define the errors (DNS, TCP, TLS, HTTP, ...) for the error code list and meanings?

Also, how were these errors chosen out of all errors defined in those specs?

Thanks,
mav

All,

I put up a proposal for additional network-related errors at http://www.w3.org/2011/webtv/wiki/MPTF/HTML_Error_codes

I would hope these would be uncontroversial and so could be added to one of the existing LC1 bugs as a concrete proposal for discussion.

I suggest we discuss these a little on this list and then link them from the appropriate bug.
