Default [fitsbits] proposed FITS MIME types Internet Draft

ADASS is coming up soon, and we expect to submit the FITS MIME
Internet Draft for official review by the FITS committees in about a
month. As before, the documents are available on the web at
with supporting commentary and documentation at

There has been no change in the content of the Internet Draft since
June. The only point left unresolved from previous discussions was
whether the image/fits MIME type SHOULD or MUST have at least one
pixel. This question seems to be most relevant in the context of
how VO applications might return indications of error.

Please have a look at the Internet Draft. The next IETF meeting
is in mid November, and the queues for submitting new proposed
Internet Drafts will reopen after that.
