Technical Summary

   The WebDAV "Add Member" extension adds the ability for a client to
   create a resource on a server by using a POST request on the
   collection that is to contain the resource. This avoids the need for
   the client to choose a resource name for the new resource.

Working Group Summary

   This is not a WG document. However discussion has taken place on the
   WebDAV mailing list over the time the document has evolved. Additional
   interested groups (CardDAV and CalDAV) have been cc'd on discussions
   as needed.

Document Quality

   Several implementations of this specification are eager to implement
