Description Julian Reschke 2014-03-19 13:53:37 UTC
The specs are approved and in the RFC Editor queue, waiting for publication.

(I can help with the changes as HTTP is now defined by 6, not 2 specs)
Comment 1 Anne 2014-03-19 14:51:30 UTC
Please ping this bug once they are published.
Comment 2 Julian Reschke 2014-05-20 14:56:37 UTC
...they should be ready in ~2 weeks.
Comment 3 Julian Reschke 2014-06-17 17:16:19 UTC
The specs have been published two weeks ago. Is there anything specific you need in addition?
Comment 4 Anne 2014-06-17 17:35:08 UTC
I guess this bug is now mostly affecting Fetch as XMLHttpRequest's HTTP dependency is gone (still there through Fetch though).

As for what this needs, a patch to would help.

Comment 6 Anne 2015-08-10 15:42:15 UTC

HTTPAUTH was not entirely obsoleted so leaving the latest stable reference intact.
Comment 7 Julian Reschke 2015-08-10 15:51:50 UTC
RFC 2617 is obsoleted by the combination of RFC 7235 + 3 additional specs. The latter ones have been approved by the IESG and will likely be published in the next few weeks; see <>.

Will update the bug once the RFCs are published.
Comment 8 Anne 2015-09-26 09:46:31 UTC
Still does not seem obsoleted. Please file an issue on GitHub once it is. Leaving this as fixed per comment 6.
Comment 9 Julian Reschke 2015-09-26 13:50:43 UTC
Will happen next week. See <>.
