Targeted HTTP Cache Control

Approval announcement
Draft of message to be sent after approval:

Technical Summary

   This document defines a technique for specifying Cache-Control that's scoped to a specific entity, specifically a CDN. This allows conventions used across CDNs to be standardized.

Working Group Summary

   This document had support and authorship from three major CDNs. The rest of the WG supported the work, but was less involved than the CDN vendors. 

Document Quality

   The protocol is being worked on by three major CDNs, who have done implementations of cache control mechanisms for their CDNs. These vendors are all planning to use this new standard format.
