HTTP Extension WG
The HTTP Working Group has come to consensus on HTTP/1.1 and is moving
to close. The HTTP Extension WG will seek to provide guidance for
using HTTP and building upon it by providing feedback on past issues,
areas of contention or ambiguity, management issues such as security and firewall traversal, and other relevant areas as seen fit by and at the request of the IESG.
The HTTP Extension WG is not intending to become a general respository of
work items to arbitrarily extend the functionality or feature set of HTTP/1.1.
Specifically, we look to avoid becoming the HTTP/1.2 Working Group
- Create an FYI document which provides guidance for groups
extending or building on top of HTTP
- Create a standards track document specifying an OPTIONS, PEP or
hybrid mechanism for feature discovery in HTTP
- Support the progression of the W3C PEP draft to status EXPERIMENTAL
- Terminate the WG.
