IESG last call of the specifications occurred in September 1998. The issues here all relate to issues raised during and after the IESG last call period.
The comments are based on the Revision 4 of the HTTP/1.1 specification, and Auth-02 of HTTP Authentication.
When referring to issues on the list, it helps the editor if you put the issue name into the subject line of any mail messages.
The Name field contains the name of the issue; and there are hypertext anchors present in this document of these names for each issue, to aid in cross referencing. We generally don't change the name or delete it once an issue has been opened.
The Short Description field contains a short description of the issue, often hyperlinked to a longer explanation of the issue.
The Status field can have the following values:
The Raised By field contains a mailto: link to the name of the person who raised the issue initially.
The Resp. field contains a mailto: link to the name of the person responsible for drafting language to fix the issue, or responsible to see that action on the issue occurs.
