1.  Introduction

   This document registers those Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP)
   methods which have been defined in standards-track RFCs other than
   [draft-ietf-httpbis-p2-semantics] before the IANA HTTP Method
   Registry was established.

2.  Security Considerations

   There are no security considerations related to the registration
   itself.

3.  IANA Considerations

   The table below provides registrations of HTTP method names to be
   added to the IANA HTTP Method registry at
   <http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-methods> (see Section 8.1 of
   [draft-ietf-httpbis-p2-semantics]).
