           Summary: REMOVE_ETAG_SUPPORT_FOR_IF_HEADER
           Product: WebDAV-RFC2518-bis
           Version: -07
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: 09.  HTTP Headers for Distributed Authoring
        AssignedTo: joe-bugzilla@cursive.net
        ReportedBy: elias@cse.ucsc.edu

It was suggested that we remove the ETAG support in the IF header because it
doesn't seem to be used right now (no interop) and the same thing can be
achieved via other mechanisms.

See:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-dist-auth/2002AprJun/0045.html

In that thread it seems to be almost resolved that we eliminate the ETAG support
from IF: headers in that anyone who cared seemed to prefer removing it, but the
discussion got diverted and no final decision was made. Again on
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-dist-auth/2002JulSep/0081.html but it
was actively used in subsequent discussions on the IF: header and strongly
advocated there Sept/Oct 2002.
