A Revised Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
directories. This draft is a work item of the Uniform Resource Identifiers 
Working Group of the IETF.                                                 

       Title     : The Path URN Specification                              
       Author(s) : D. LaLiberte, M. Shapiro
       Filename  : draft-ietf-uri-urn-path-01.txt
       Pages     : 8
       Date      : 07/26/1995

A new "path" URN scheme is proposed that defines a uniformly hierarchical 
name space. This URN scheme supports dynamic relocation and replication of 
resources. Existing DNS technology is used to resolve a path into sets of 
equivalent URLs, and then one URL is resolved into the named resource.

Internet-Drafts are also available by mail.	
	                                                
Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-uri-urn-path-01.txt".
							
NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net 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 Internet-Drafts@cnri.reston.va.us.
							

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