The HTTP-based Memento framework bridges the present and past Web.  It
facilitates obtaining representations of prior states of a given
resource by introducing datetime negotiation and TimeMaps.  Datetime
negotiation is a variation on content negotiation that leverages the
given resource's URI and a user agent's preferred datetime.  TimeMaps
are lists that enumerate URIs of resources that encapsulate prior
states of the given resource.  The framework also facilitates
recognizing a resource that encapsulates a frozen prior state of
another resource.
