Gmane

Subject: clandestine move of draft-daboo-webdav-mkcol
Newsgroups: gmane.ietf.webdav
Date: Sunday 20th July 2008 16:32:21 UTC (over 8 years ago)
Correct me if I'm wrong:

2007-11-12 C. Daboo posted 
<http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-daboo-webdav-mkcol-00>
and announced 
it on <[email protected]>

 From 2007-11-12 to 2007-12-01 four people (including the author of the 
draft) posted ten contributions to the discussion. There was no 
consensus. The latest contribution from the author dates 2007-11-19.

There was no further public discussion about that draft.

Exception:
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-dist-auth/2008AprJun/0011.html>

refers to this draft and got no answer from the author of the draft.

2008-05-14 the draft expired.

2008-05-14, the same day, the draft was recycled (with small changes) as 
<http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-vcarddav-webdav-mkcol-00>.

The recycled draft is assigned to Vcarddav working group, though the 
draft claims to be *not* specific to any WebDAV-extension.

The recycled draft was not announced on <[email protected]> nor on 
.

There was no announcement of an intended move on <[email protected]>. 
But obviously this move was intended (posting it with a new name at the 
very date when it expires).

- Is this a new kind of creating open standards?
- Searching for the list of least resistance?
- Any relations to the employer of C. Daboo (Apple Inc.)?

Cheers
Werner
