The IESG has received a request from the Internet Engineering Steering
Group WG (iesg) to consider the following document:
- 'HTTP Status Code 308 (Permanent Redirect) to Proposed Standard'
  <status-change-http-status-code-308-ps-01.txt> from Experimental

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the mailing lists by 2014-12-29. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


In 2012, when RFC 7238 was approved, we went for Experimental because it
was, indeed, an experiment.  Since then, it has been implemented in Firefox and
Chrome, and Safari already supported it due to their default handling of 3xx +

The experiment is, therefore, over, and was a success.  This action moves RFC
7238 to the Standards Track, as Proposed Standard.
