WGLC of draft-ietf-webdav-rfc2518bis-14.txt

I am absolutely thrilled to be able to Working Group Last Call (WGLC)
draft-ietf-webdav-rfc2518bis. The WGLC will end on March 15, 2006.

I am aware of one complex open issue with this version of the draft. The use
of ETAGs in the response to a HTTP PUT is not exactly clear in the HTTP spec
and this has implications for WebDAV. Some folks are working on a draft to
clarify this in HTTP. I'm sure this issue will be discussed during the Last

On minor issues, Julian will be proposing new text for bug 143.

The "if header" section needs particularly careful review.

I would like to ask everyone to read this. We really need to get some fresh
eyes reading this document. Did we get it right? Is there enough detail that
you can implement it? Does this clarify previous interoperable problems?

Thank you,

I'd like to take this moment to thank the several contributors that put in a
ton of work to make this happen and to all the folks on the mailing list
that put up with the roughly two thousand email posts from bugzilla. I
really hope the volume of these will be reducing.
