Re: Last Call: draft-ietf-webdav-rfc2518bis (HTTP Extensions for Distributed Authoring - WebDAV) to Proposed Standard

First, my appreciation to everyone that has participated in the recent 
push
to produce a revision of RFC-2518. 

I have reviewed rfc2518bis-17, as well as the remaining issues in bugzilla
and the document:
<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-reschke-webdav-rfc2518bis-latest.html>

I believe that a significantly better document could be produced within 
the 
next 2 months, based on reschcke document.

I would like to see action on the current bis document be deferred for
that period of time, with the explicit goal of giving the working group
an opportunity to evaluate and express a preference between the two 
alternatives.
We'll be living with the rfc2518bis document for a long time, so I believe
this extra two months would be time well spent.

Cheers,
Geoff
