Hi Ted,

thanks for the information.

It's a pity that RFC2518bis as of draft 18 isn't better -- lots of 
issues have been raised before and during the Last Calls, and only some 
of them have been fixed, although proposed resolutions for many of them 
were available.

In particular, it's kind of embarrassing that the WG has a second 
document in the pipeline (draft-ietf-webdav-bind-17) which already has 
to fix a bug in RFC2518bis - a bug that has been reported over half a 
year ago (see 
<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-webdav-bind-17.html#rfc.section.A>).

That being said I *do* agree with the decision to close the working 
group, as the previous years have clearly shown that the WG's 
productivity wasn't as good as it should have been.

Looking forward to submitting SEARCH and BIND, and then to go on working 
on RFC2518bisbis, RFC3253bis and RFC3744bis as private submissions.

Best regards, Julian
