	Title		: Requirements for Access Control 
                          within Distributed Authoring and Versioning 
                          Environments on the World Wide Web

To provide a robust model for modifying documents and data within a
distributed World Wide Web authoring environment, it is necessary to
furnish a methodology which controls access to objects.  Access control
may include the ability to read an object, modify an object, or perform
other more advanced functions upon an object.  Access control is
necessary to prevent unauthorized access or modification of objects
within the authoring environment which could lead to unintended loss,
damage or disclosure of data.
This document proposes requirements for the support of access control
within a Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) environment.
It describes a model for the representation and interpretation of access
control policies, and a set of operations needed to manage policies in
that form.  It is intended that these requirements be supported within
the framework of the proposed WebDAV extensions [WEBDAV1] to HTTP
[HTTP], in the form of additional protocol operations and compliance
requirements for clients and servers

NOTE:	The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.

implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
