Hi,
During the last teleconference, we discussed fragment handling in redirect 
now that fragments are allowed in redirects (in httpbis).
Here is the history of allowing them:

It is httpbis issue #6 [1], so part of the RFC2616 errata [2].

It relates to the following thread [3] where the discussion about fragment 
combination started [4], and also about the difference between CL and 
Location [5], and the CGI definition at [6], and draft-bot-http-redirect [7]

So the discussion started in 1999, with some questions left open, and 
included in the errata.
Cheers,
