Protocol Action: 'WebDAV Access Control Protocol' to Proposed Standard

The IESG has approved following document:

- 'WebDAV Access Control Protocol '
   <draft-ietf-webdav-acl-12.txt> as a Proposed Standard

This document is the product of the WWW Distributed Authoring and Versioning 
Working Group. 

The IESG contact persons are Ted Hardie and Ned Freed.

 Technical Summary
   This document specifies a set of methods, headers, message bodies, 
   properties, and reports that define Access Control extensions to the 
   WebDAV Distributed Authoring Protocol. This protocol permits a client 
   to read and modify access control lists that instruct a server 
   whether to allow or deny operations upon a resource (such as 
   HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) method invocations) by a given 
   principal. A lightweight representation of principals as Web 
   resources supports integration of a wide range of user management 
   repositories. Search operations allow discovery and manipulation of 
   principals using human names.
