Rails 3.2 and PATCH
- Hey everyone!
I just wanted to draw attention to the discussion here:
While the pull request is originally from May, there's some discussion
about adding support for PATCH in Rails 3.2. If you read the
discussion, there's a lot of controversy over the semantics of PUT and
partial updates, discussion about if and when PATCH will become more
than a draft standard, and all kinds of fun stuff.
I thought this discussion might be relevant to this community.

That's why I removed PATCH from RFC2068 (because it was supposedly going to
be developed further by DAV and we did not want a conflicting definition).
