  Modified:    src      CHANGES
               src/modules/standard mod_negotiation.c
  Log:
  Explain why we do not round the TCN quality calculation to 5 decimal places,
  unlike RFC 2296, because the calculation might need 12 decimal places
  to get the right result.

  +  *) Do not round the TCN quality calculation to 5 decimal places,
  +     unlike RFC 2296, because the calculation might need 12 decimal places
  +     to get the right result.  [Roy Fielding]
  +
     *) Remove unused code to disable transparent negotiation when
        negotiating on encoding only, as we now handle encoding too
        (though this is nonstandard for TCN), and fix bugs in debugging
