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 the specification (mostly calendar/vcard related). Personnel Cyrus Daboo is the Document Shepherd. Alexey Melnikov is the Responsible Area Director.
