Internet-Draft          HTTP Method Registrations             March 2010


1.  Introduction

   This document registers those Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP)
   methods which have been defined in standards-track RFCs before the
   IANA HTTP Method Registry was established.


2.  Security Considerations

   There are no security considerations related to the registration
   itself.


3.  IANA Considerations

   Appendix A provides initial registrations of HTTP method names for
   the IANA HTTP Method registry at
   <http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-methods> (see Section 2.1 of
   [draft-ietf-httpbis-p2-semantics]).
