Heya,

   I'm not sure if this is the right mailing list to send this to.
Anyway, IRC developers/users would like the formal specification
of a URN of the format  irc://   The suggested URL format would
be:

irc://server/#channelname

With the integration of chat, several different companies now
use non standard extensions or plugins for irc clients. We'd
like to formalize this URL in the same manner as  news://
mail:// and ftp://

Please let me know which committee handles new URL suggestions.
Thanks...really appreciate it.
