proposed change for part 1

comment:1 Changed 5 years ago by julian.reschke@gmx.de

From [580]:

re-organize section on HTTP-date including ABNF, refer to RFC 5322 for semantics (related to #163)

comment:2 Changed 5 years ago by julian.reschke@gmx.de

From [582]:

reduce noise in date ABNF now that we use BAP's feature expanding byte sequences of printable characters into comments (related to #163)

comment:3 Changed 5 years ago by julian.reschke@gmx.de

From [584]:

fix typo (related to #163)

comment:4 Changed 4 years ago by julian.reschke@gmx.de

  • Priority set to urgent

Proposal: state that two digit dates have been and continue to be ambiguous and implementations differ.

comment:5 Changed 4 years ago by julian.reschke@gmx.de

  • Owner set to julian.reschke@gmx.de
  • Status changed from new to assigned

The two-digit-year issue is already mentioned in Appendix A:

"HTTP/1.1 clients and caches SHOULD assume that an RFC-850 date which appears to be more than 50 years in the future is in fact in the past (this helps solve the "year 2000" problem)."

Thus I propose to close this issue now.
