Hi All,

I am sorry for my delayed answer and missing the deadline.
I am in the comfortable situation of replying after the others have done it already.

I do not want to disagree, I try to care.

I accept the fact that the versioning - as principle - will be implicit and/or realized by different means than version identifiers.
I can live with it.
So I agree.

Subject: ISSUE-4: Versioning Straw Poll


I'd like to get a rough view of where people stand with respect to API
versioning, so here's a straw poll. Straw polls are different from
formal votes in that they aren't binding for the WG - they just
provide for a quick snapshot to get a feel for the state of a debate.
Also, answers are per participant, not per company (though we'll
notice ballot stuffing of course).

Here's the SP:

   This house believes that explicit version mechanisms on an API, such
   as have been done elsewhere using for instance hasFeature(), a
   attribute on interface object, or a version parameter passed to a
   constructor are not useful in a web context and should be forsaken.
   Future revisions to given interfaces should either be strictly
   change names, or ensure that what limited deltas are made do not
   real-world code.

Answers can be:

   - I Agree
   - I Disagree
   - I Don't Care

Please reply by September 1st.
