Technical Summary This specification defines the Sunset HTTP response header field, which indicates that a URI is likely to become unresponsive at a specified point in the future. It also defines a sunset link relation type that allows linking to resources providing information about an upcoming resource or service sunset. Working Group Summary This is not a WG document, however HTTPBIS was made aware of it. Document Quality Version -07 had a list of implementations. The Document Shepherd thinks that Informational is appropriate for this document; it's not likely to cause harm, and it may do some good, but it hasn't been widely reviewed or implemented enough to make it standards-track. Personnel Mark Nottingham is the document shepherd; Alexey Melnikov is the responsible Area Director.
