This specification extends the Web Distributed Authoring and
Versioning (WebDAV) Protocol to support the server-side ordering of
collection members.  Of particular interest are orderings that are not
based on property values, and so cannot be achieved using a search
protocol's ordering option and cannot be maintained automatically by
the server.  Protocol elements are defined to let clients specify the
position in the ordering of each collection member, as well as the
semantics governing the ordering.  

This document is a product of the WWW Distributed Authoring and
Versioning Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for
the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the
"Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution
of this memo is unlimited.
