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 <http://carddav.calconnect.org/implementations.html> Personnel Alexey Melnikov is both the responsible AD and the shepherd for this document.
