Technical Summary

  This document defines extensions to the Web Distributed Authoring and
  Versioning (WebDAV) protocol to specify a standard way of accessing,
  managing, and sharing contact information based on the vCard format.

Working Group Summary

  Early revisions of the document used vcarddav-specific action
  MKADDRESSBOOK. After some WG discussions it became clear that
  a more generic MKCOL action would be a better HTTP design.
  The document was updated accordingly.

  Also, there was a consensus call on whether support for vCard 4.0
  (the version still being worked on by the WG) should be a SHOULD.

  Apart from that, there is nothing worth noting about WG process.

Document Quality

  There are at least 4 independent client and 5 independent server
  implementations of this document. See


  Alexey Melnikov is both the responsible AD and the shepherd for
  this document.
