[Fwd: I-D ACTION:draft-reschke-webdav-search-10.txt]

Julian Reschke

picking up the discussion started last month

Right now, there doesn't seem to be a lot of ongoing development, but
there *are* several servers implementing most of SEARCH and the
DAV:basicsearch grammar (Apache Slide, Catacomb, Xythos WFS, SAP KM,
...), and some at least implementing SEARCH with custom grammars (Apache
Jackrabbit, IIS + derivates, ...).

So it seems to me the best way forward (instead of doing nothing) is to
bring the draft into a shape that would allow it to be published as
Experimental Standard.

For the open issues, this means:

- either closing them as WON'T FIX,

- documenting them in an appendix,

- resolving them.

In draft 10, I've done that for all open issues except one (for which
I'll write a separate summary).

Please check out the new Appendix "Unresolved Issues"
and also have a look at the other changes

Best regards,

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

        Title : Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) SEARCH
        Author(s) : J. Reschke, et al.
        Filename : draft-reschke-webdav-search-10.txt

This document specifies a set of methods, headers, properties and
    content-types composing WebDAV SEARCH, an application of the HTTP/1.1
    protocol to efficiently search for DAV resources based upon a set of
    client-supplied criteria.

        a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
        exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
        "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
        up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
        how to manipulate these messages.

As a matter of fact, that issue - "result truncation" - was simpler than
I recalled (see

To me, the simplest way forward here is:

- document that we don't have result paging (done in:

- fix description of marshalling truncated results so that it's part of
a normative section, not an example (see

At this point, I think the draft is ready to be submitted as version 11,
to be last-called over here for a few weeks.

Feedback appreciated,
