A new revision of the WebDAv Distributed Authoring Protocol has been
submitted to the Internet Drafts editor, and will be available in the
Internet Drafts directory in the next few days as

This revision addresses Keith Moore's comments on the previous (-08)
revision, and resolves problems submitted to the list.

While a detailed list of changes to the specification is currently under
preparation, major changes include:

 * changed to be in agreement with newer XML namespace proposals,
specifically WD-xml-names-19980916
 * changed status code 425 (Insufficient Space on Resource) to 507
(Insufficient Storage)
 * added language to clarify meaning and requirements for namespace
 * added charset attribute to Content-Type headers for text/xml bodies in
 * added charset encoding attribute to XML examples

The authoritative revision of the specification is always the text version,

A variant of the protocol which has all changes marked is available as a
Word 97/98 document at:

If you find any problems with these documents, please report them to the
list quickly!  After a brief last call for comments
draft-ietf-webdav-protocol-09 will go before the IESG for approval as a
Proposed Standard.
