Description Julian Reschke 2010-11-11 08:51:17 UTC
<> currently says:

"Some versions of HTTP defined a Link: header, to be processed like a series of link elements."

Now that RFC 5988 is the official spec for the Link header field this could use some rewording, such as:

"RFC 5988 defines the HTTP Link: header field, to be processed..."
