HTTP Core Documents


This is the working area for the IETF HTTP Working Group’s documents that define the HTTP protocol. See also our extensions repository.

Pull requests and issues are welcome. See our contribution guidelines for information about how to participate. The building instructions explain how to build the drafts from source – but please only create PRs against the XML (i.e., do not update the HTML).

Be aware that all contributions to our work fall under the “NOTE WELL” terms therein.


The HTTP “core” documents have been published; see the specification listing
