FWIW I'm going to push for the Mozilla implementation to dispatch only when an event is clearly terminated with a blank line (I filed the bug). If EOF is encountered w/out a blank line it should be considered an incomplete/corrupted event.
The "fix" for the spec would be to drop the line Once the end of the file is reached, the user agent must dispatch the event one final time, as defined below. For clarity something explicit could be added If the end of the file is reached while collecting data and before encountering a blank line the incomplete event must not be dispatched. -Dan Veditz On 7/5/11 5:49 AM, Arthur Barstow wrote: > Since this thread was started, bug 13071 was filed against this spec > (the only open bug): > > http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=13071 > > Any comments re the priority of this bug, in particular if it must > be addressed before publishing a new LCWD? > > Hixie - would you please provide a rough estimate re when you can > address this bug? > > All - if anyone is willing to submit a fix for this bug, please send > the fix to the list or add the fix to the bug. > > -AB > > On 6/24/11 7:33 AM, ext Arthur Barstow wrote: >> Hixie, All, >> >> Ian responded  to the last set of Server-Sent Events comments I >> had noted, and Bugzilla now reports Zarro Boogs  for this spec >> (11835/Fixed, 11836/WontFix, 12411/Fixed, 12883/WontFix). >> >> As such, this raises the question if the spec is ready for Last >> Call Working Draft publication (see  for information about what >> it means for the spec to be "LC ready").
