Technical Summary This proposal creates a well-known Web site location for information like 'robots.txt' and P3P information, any information that is metadata about the Web site. The alternative to this proposal is to continue with one-off well-known names. Working Group Summary This is not a WG product. The open discussion focused on narrow points like the exact characters making up the well-known name, and on points that can be extended in the future like standardized file formats for site meta-data. Document Quality The W3C community has been well-informed and involved in discussions on this document. There's already discussion about using the recommended path for the Mozilla auto-configuration feature under development. Personnel Lisa Dusseault is the Document sponsor.
