RFC 7231, "Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP/1.1): Semantics and Content", June 2014

Source of RFC: httpbis (app)

Errata ID: 5541
Status: Held for Document Update

Section 4.3.5 says:

If a DELETE
   request passes through a cache that has one or more stored responses
   for the effective request URI, those stored responses will be
   invalidated

It should say:

If a successful DELETE
   request passes through a cache that has one or more stored responses
   for the effective request URI, those stored responses will be
   invalidated

Notes:

RFC 7234 4.4 describes the semantics of cache invalidation for successful requests (non-error status code), but does not describe semantics for unsuccessful requests. The corrected text parallels the construction in section 4.3.4 ("If a successful PUT request...").

I think HOLD FOR UPDATE; we can address this in the current http-core work.
