Subject Re: Negotiation updates part II
Date Mon, 23 Sep 1996 04:00:35 GMT

Doesn't look like this got committed.  Looking over everything it appears this
is relatively uncontroversial - and it looks like it's gotten the proper
scrutiny by the HTTP cop and his sargeants.  :)  If Roy gives it a +1, I'll
concur with a +1; this seems like something that should accompany any claim of
HTTP 1.1 compliance, at least in spirit.  Though, at this point, we might want
to consider just leaving the Holtman stuff completely out of whatever we
distribute to the public, lest it end up accidentally in someone's browser and
then we have a support legacy to consider.
