The IESG has received a request to change the registration of HTTP
status code 425 to "Unassigned".[1]

HTTP status code 425 was pre-allocated in RFC 2817 for the WebDAV
Advanced Collections draft, which was a work in progress at the time.
The draft[2] was abandoned and expired thirteen years ago. The status
code was never properly defined, and there are no known implementations.

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 2012-11-08. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to instead. In either case, please retain the Subject line
to allow automated sorting.
