text to add in section 6

6.1 Use of the HTTP Protocol

  • The YADIS protocol relies on the standard HTTP protocol. Requests or responses that are nonconforming to the RFC2616 are considered broken.
  • The use of HTTP in this document implies using HTTPS when the protocol identifier is /https/.
  • Agents should follow HTTP redirect responses. Agents may terminate a chain of redirect responses after a reasonable depth.
