8The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application-level protocol for
9distributed, collaborative, hypertext information systems. This document
10defines HTTP/1.1 conditional requests, including metadata header fields for
11indicating state changes, request header fields for making preconditions on
12such state, and rules for constructing the responses to a conditional request
13when one or more preconditions evaluate to false.

272. Review and Consensus
28
29As chartered, this work was very constrained; the WG sought only to clarify
30RFC2616, making significant technical changes only where there were
31considerably interoperability or security issues.
32
33While the bulk of the work was done by a core team of editors, it has been
34reviewed by a substantial number of implementers, and design issues enjoyed
35input from many of them.
36
37It has been through two Working Group Last Calls, with multiple reviewers each
38time. We have also discussed this work with external groups (e.g., the W3C TAG).
