The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is increasingly being used in
systems that are tightly coupled with Hypertext Transport Protocol
(HTTP) servers for a variety of reasons.  In many of these cases,
applications can benefit from being able to discover, in near real-
time, when a specific HTTP resource is created, changed, or deleted.
This document proposes a mechanism, based on the SIP Event Framework,
for doing so.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
