To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: On 'Internet Drafts' From: Larry Masinter <email@example.com> Message-Id: <95Jul10.firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Mon, 10 Jul 1995 09:59:00 PDT I think we have too many "draft-ietf-uri-*" Internet drafts. I don't think I understood the rules. I'm still not sure I understand the rules, but I think the general rule is: > if it is the work of one or several individuals, it is > "draft-yourname-*". If this is a document that is the work of the > committee, and has been circulated on the list, and we have agreed > that you are the editor of the document and you have agreed to make > changes according to the consensus of the committee, then it becomes > "draft-ietf-uri-*". If we're intending to produce something as an RFC, then it needs to appear in the 'milestones' of the charter. If we're not intending to turn a document into an RFC (informational, standards track, experimental) then it probably shouldn't be a working-group document. Now an RFC: * draft-ietf-uri-irl-fun-req-03.txt * draft-ietf-uri-relative-url-06.txt * draft-ietf-uri-url-08.txt * draft-ietf-uri-urn-req-01.txt deleted: * draft-ietf-uri-resource-names-03.txt * draft-ietf-uri-urc-00.txt * draft-ietf-uri-urc-spec-00.txt * draft-ietf-uri-urn2urc-00.txt * draft-ietf-uri-yaurn-00.txt On the way to becoming an RFC of the committee, I think. (I think that we're working on these as a committee rather than as individual contributions): Some of these don't appear in the 'milestones' of the draft charter. * draft-ietf-uri-urc-req-01.txt * draft-ietf-uri-urc-sgml-00.txt * draft-ietf-uri-urc-trivial-00.txt * draft-ietf-uri-url-finger-02.txt * draft-ietf-uri-url-irp-02.txt * draft-ietf-uri-url-mailserver-02.txt * draft-ietf-uri-urn-syntax-00.txt * draft-ietf-uri-urn-res-descript-00.txt URN schemes. I think we're intending to chose one or more of these and then develop them in committee: * draft-ietf-uri-urn-x-dns-2-00.txt * draft-ietf-uri-urn-handles-00.txt * draft-ietf-uri-urn-path-00.txt I think that we're intending to work on these in committee, but I'm not sure: * draft-ietf-uri-ura-00.txt * draft-ietf-uri-urn-resolution-01.txt Other problem cases: * draft-ietf-uri-urn-issues-00.txt Should this be turned into a revision of RFC 1737 (URN requirements?) Is this a WG document? Will we accept this as committee work? * draft-ietf-uri-roy-urn-urc-00.txt probably shouldn't be a working group I-D in its current form. I.e., the working group shouldn't be working on 'how Roy would implement URNs'. * draft-ietf-uri-urn-res-thoughts-00.txt probably shouldn't be a working group I-D in its current form. I.e., the working group shouldn't be working on 'how the working group will proceed'
