URI Scheme Review Mailing List

A new (separate) mailing list has been established specifically for
the purpose of IETF review of proposed URI schemes. The list is


The list is moderated; Patrik Fältström <paf@cisco.com> is
currently the moderator.
See https://www1.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/uri-review for info about 
the mailing list. Please subscribe if you are interested and
willing to help review URI scheme proposals and registrations.
A separate list was established because specific review requests
for URI schemes tended to not get responses on 'uri@w3.org'.
