I'm please to announce the availability of the http-state mailing
list. Details on subscribing/unsubscribing, archives, related
documents, etc., can be found at
This mailing list is for the discussion of state management in HTTP
under the auspices (at least now) of the HTTP-WG. Specific topics
- Changes to RFC 2109 to guide it to Internet Standard status.
- Add-on capabilities for the RFC 2109 state management mechanism.
- New state management mechanisms (outside RFC 2109).
I invite anyone who is interested to subscribe to the mailing list now,
but I ask people to hold back from posting to the list until this
Monday, May 5, 1997, so no one who's interested will miss out on the
(early) discussions. Thanks.
