8The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application-level protocol for
9distributed, collaborative, hypertext information systems. This document
10defines range requests and the rules for constructing and combining responses
11to those requests.

252. Review and Consensus
26
27As chartered, this work was very constrained; the WG sought only to clarify
28RFC2616, making significant technical changes only where there were
29considerably interoperability or security issues.
30
31While the bulk of the work was done by a core team of editors, it has been
32reviewed by a substantial number of implementers, and design issues enjoyed
33input from many of them.
34
35It has been through two Working Group Last Calls, with multiple reviewers each
36time. We have also discussed this work with external groups (e.g., the W3C TAG).

42that has not been disclosed.

45
46Downward references: None.
47
48New registries created:
49
50* The HTTP Range Unit Registry policy is IETF Review. This policy was chosen
51  because range units are frequently misunderstood and misapplied.
52
53Updated registries: None.
