I'll qualify this by saying I haven't read the spec yet (and I promise,
I will), but why just MKCOL; why not PUT as well (maybe BIND too??? ...
any method where you create an object)?   Again, without having read the
spec. yet, seems like this might be focusing in on too specific a use

I can see this being very useful for setting up collections that are
meant to be used as "application bundles", but why not try to propose a
more generic spec. that allows for applying meta-data templates to any

.... of, course easy to say from the sidelines; I should also say that
Xythos would be very interested in contributing to/reviewing such a

Hi folks,
I have posted the following draft:

    A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts

    	Title           : Extended MKCOL for WebDAV
    	Author(s)       : C. Daboo
    	Filename        : draft-daboo-webdav-mkcol-00.txt
    	Pages           : 16
    	Date            : 2007-11-12

    This specification extends the WebDAV MKCOL method to allow
    collections and resources of arbitrary resourcetype to be created
    to allow properties to be set at the same time.

This draft arose from a discussion of the CardDAV spec where it was
noted we were starting to have too many MKxxx methods, and it would be
better to define a webdav generic extended MKCOL instead.

Please review and comment, thanks.

Cyrus Daboo
