Hi.

I've read the editor's draft again, and I'd like to point out a
problem with the following excerpt :

 4.3 HTTP POST

 There are no additional requirements on HTTP POST for BPRs.

 4.4 HTTP PUT

I'm a bit short on how to implement that ;-) No additional requirements,
compared to ?

Maybe one needs to have fully read other HTTP specs before, which
shouldn't be repeated in LDBP, but I fear we are a bit short on
explaining when to use PUT vs POST for instance.

More generally, shouldn't one sentence be repeated for each of the BPR
methods to explain that they are used for retrieval, modification,
removal, etc ?

I'm not sure this is worth creating an issue in the tracker.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
