Hi,

I just submitted draft 07 of draft-reschke-webdav-property-datatypes:

<http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-reschke-webdav-property-datatypes-07.txt>

As previously announced, this draft removes the definition of various 
property flags and DASL extensions, concentrating on the core property 
datatyping as implemented / being implemented in SAP's Enterprise Portal 
and SAP Netweaver, and Xythos WebFile Server.

This part of the spec has been stable for several years now, and as far 
as I can tell, the WebDAV working group currently lacks the time to 
transform this into a Working Group activity. On the other hand, this 
work not only is implemented in shipping products, it should also be 
valuable for anybody looking at adding typing to WebDAV properties. 
Thus, it probably makes sense for it being published by the IETF, either 
as experimental or proposed protocol.

I hereby invite all readers to review the spec (both for content and 
editorial aspects). Unless no new issues are raised, I plan to last-call 
it and then submit it to the IESG as a private submission. I'd also 
appreciate feedback on which publication status (experimental/proposed) 
I should target.

Note that those sections that were removed (see change information in 
<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-reschke-webdav-property-datatypes-07.html>) 
will later appear in a separate draft built on top of the core property 
types spec.

Best regards, Julian
