Ticket #356 (closed editorial: fixed)
|Reported by:||firstname.lastname@example.org||Owned by:||email@example.com|
|Component:||p7-auth||Severity:||In WG Last Call|
A user agent that wishes to authenticate itself with an origin server -- usually, but not necessarily, after receiving a 401 (Unauthorized) -- MAY do so by including an Authorization header field with the request.
A client that wishes to authenticate itself with a proxy -- usually, but not necessarily, after receiving a 407 (Proxy Authentication Required) -- MAY do so by including a Proxy-Authorization header field with the request.
It doesn't look like use of the 2 MAYs above is appropriate, because they are not implementation alternatives. Maybe change them to "can"?
- Status changed from new to closed
- Resolution set to fixed
- Summary changed from Spurious "MAY"s to Spurious "MAYs"
