Call for Participation: new internet draft for WebDAV SEARCH method

The original WebDAV DASL working group doesn't exist anymore, and the last
DASL working draft has expired. After collecting (and partly) resolving
issues for some time, I have been advised by Jim Whitehead (chair of the
WebDAV WG) to change my current version of the draft into an individual
submission and to "re-open" the discussion over here. To avoid confusion,
this draft is simply called "WebDAV SEARCH" (rather than "DASL").

The current (unfinished and unsubmitted) version can be found at:


The top priorities right now seem to be:

- get together people who have implemented or are planning to implement the
WebDAV SEARCH method in clients and servers
- identify currently open issues and resolve them

In particular I'd like to see discussion around the following topics:

Q1) Should the draft attempt to define Query Schema Discovery for
DAV:basicsearch? Has anybody actually *implemented* QSD?

Q2) Is there any real interest of defining a generic SEARCH framework that
can exist independantly of WebDAV? If not, it could make sense just to
define a REPORT based on property searching, and the complexity of the draft
could be greatly reduced.
