Fwd: I-D ACTION:draft-dusseault-http-patch-05.txt

From: Lisa Dusseault <lisa@osafoundation.org>

To: HTTP working group <ietf-http-wg@w3.org>, Webdav WG <w3c-dist-auth@w3c.org>
Message-Id: <9CEE6170-FB91-11D8-BB9D-000A95B2BB72@osafoundation.org>
This is the latest version of PATCH.  Compared to the -04 draft:
  - Moved sections for interoperability with RFC3744 (ACL) and RFC3230 
(Instance digests) to new section
  - now has Security Considerations and IANA Considerations sections
  - removed references in abstract
  - No longer uses "DAV:" namespace for any new syntax, instead defines 
own namespace & registers with IANA

Once again, if I don't get feedback that requires changes beyond typos, 
I intend to submit this to standards track for consideration as a 
Proposed Standard in a week or two.  Except for the fact that this is 
not an official WG document for either WebDAV or HTTP, this constitutes 
kind of a WG last call.

All the feedback so far in both groups has been great but because 
there's been fairly close review I don't expect a lot more changes.  
I'm still hoping to hear from people who intend to implement this if it 
becomes an RFC.
