Technical Summary This draft defines how SRV records and TXT records can be used to discover CalDAV and CardDAV services on the internet. It also describes how those can be used to "bootstrap" clients during accounts setup using well-known URIs and other standards features of WebDAV. Working Group Summary This is not a WG document. Discussion has taken place on various IETF mailing lists (WebDAV (firstname.lastname@example.org), CalDAV (email@example.com) and VCardDAV (firstname.lastname@example.org)) since the -00 draft was published a year ago. Document Quality This document is designed to address a clear need for standardized client account auto-discovery based on interoperability problems in current client/server solutions for CalDAV and CardDAV. Many of the existing CalDAV and CardDAV client and server developers have indicated strong interest in supporting this, and several have already implemented this draft. Expert review for the well-known was completed. Personnel Bernard Desruisseaux is the Document Shepherd. Alexey Melnikov is the Responsible Area Director.
