Ticket #171 (closed design: fixed)
Are OPTIONS and TRACE safe?
|Reported by:||firstname.lastname@example.org||Owned by:||email@example.com|
|Component:||p2-semantics||Severity:||Active WG Document|
p2 7.2 currently says about OPTIONS: This method allows the client to
determine the options and/or requirements associated with a resource, or the capabilities of a server, without implying a resource action or initiating a resource retrieval.
That sounds safe to me, but I don't see anywhere where this is said explicitly.
The answer matters for things like redirection without user intervention (assuming we keep that requirement).
Proposal: Specify that OPTIONS is safe.
Same question for TRACE.
Note that the method registry template (new in bis) already identifies them as safe.
