Right, seems I misjudged the overlap somewhat. WebDAV is mainly dealing
with files, while Atompub is mainly aimed at the site's content.

You can upload any sort of file through Atompub. Which is why I want to
see upload of story images implemented in Atompub[1].

Yeah, clients are rare[2] for Atompub at the moment.

No, I don't think so.

Okay, so my argument doesn't hold up. I'll admit I didn't really see
much use for it last time around but maybe it's just not used in areas
I'm familiar with.

Anyway, let's leave it in then.

Btw, I see we had only one application for the WebDAV project last year
and you gave it a -2 ;-)

bye, Dirk
