IETF Standard for URI
Posted by shannonclark on January 26, 2005
Published just this month was the IETF standard for URI.
This is very important. Very, very few “standards” make it all the way to IETF standard status. The URI standard is a crucial and compelling one for the Internet as a whole. Having worked in the past on an IETF standard (actually multiple draft standards around calendaring) I have an inkling of how difficult and time consuming the process towards full standard is. Not sure when I’ll have time to read the full document, but I am actually looking forward to doing so.
