better late than never...


FYI, I attach the announcement of the latest Internet-Draft on URAs.  It
went out a couple of weeks ago, but only to the ietf-announce mailing list,
and it has been pointed out to me that not everyone on this list will have
heard about it.

A Revised Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 

       Title     : Uniform Resource Agents (URAs)                          
       Author(s) : L. Daigle, P. Deutsch, B. Heelan, C. Alpaugh, 
                   M. Maclachlan
       Filename  : draft-daigle-ura-01.txt
       Pages     : 13
       Date      : 11/22/1995

This paper presents an experimental architecture for an agent system that 
provides sophisticated Internet information access and management.  Not a 
generalized architecture for active objects that roam the Internet, these 
agents are modeled as extensions of existing pieces of the Internet 
information infrastructure.  The proposed agent technology focuses on the 
necessary information structures to encapsulate Internet activities into 
objects that can be activated, transformed, and combined into larger 
structured activities.

Send a message to: In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-daigle-ura-01.txt".
NOTE: The mail server at can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.
For questions, please mail to

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader 
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
