Re: Reliable HTTP

Hi John,

Just a thought - it might be more appropriate to take this to the
http-wg list, since you're trying to put together a generic reliable
transport (as opposed to one that's Web Service or SOAP-specific).
That list has more people with experience in the issues surrounding
the use of HTTP.
