Thanks for the reminder. That would be
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/ietf-http-wg/2013JanMar/1253.html

This part on representations might be of interest to some TAG members:
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-httpbis-p2-semantics-22#section-3
It is *very* different from what 2616 says. It's unfortunate that the word
was recycled.

Resources:
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-httpbis-p2-semantics-22#section-2

303
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-httpbis-p2-semantics-22#section-6.4.4

Content-location
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-httpbis-p2-semantics-22#section-3.1.4.2

PUT
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-httpbis-p2-semantics-22#section-4.3.4

Overall the new spec puts a heavy REST layer on top of HTTP that was not
present in 2616. (Of course, since 2616 predates REST.) An uninitiated
reader might take the REST theory to be normative, but I don't see how it
can be, given that the deployed base certainly doesn't conform to it. I'm
sure the spec will provide lots of yummy new fodder for spec-lawyering in
the years to come.

Best
Jonathan
