Ballot Text

Technical Summary 
    This document specifies the additional HyperText Transfer Protocol
    (HTTP) Status Code 308 (Permanent Redirect). This fills in a missing
    piece of HTTP redirect behavior by allowing for a permanent redirect
    that is guaranteed to not have a POST method changed to a GET.
        
Working Group Summary 
    This document is not the product of a working group, however it has
    been discussed on the HTTP mailing list where ongoing HTTPbis work
    is carried out.
        
Document Quality     
    This document has been discussed and reviewed on the HTTP mailing
    list (<ietf-http-wg@w3.org>) mailing list. Informal last calls were
    carried out on that mailing list as well as the IETF Apps Discuss
    list (<apps-discuss@ietf.org>). This specification simply registers
    a new HTTP status code that is a variant of existing well-defined
    codes, and as such is straightforward.
