Please note that the Internet Drafts editor stops accepting Internet
Drafts some considerable amount of time before the meeting. Please
allow everyone enough time to have read the appropriate material!
Submitting an unfinished draft early (even if you have to send a
revision to the list) is much better than waiting until the last

There have been some complaints about the _names_ of Internet Drafts
being confusing, e.g., something saying it was "the" URN scheme when
it wasn't a consensus, and that the z39.50 scheme for URLs should be
called "uri-url-irp".

I don't think this is an issue worth spending much time on, but if
you're in doubt as to what you should ask the Internet Drafts editor
to call your document, either use your name in it (Mr. Frobboz would
call his draft-ietf-uri-frobboz-00.txt) or consult me.


Here are the current requests for agenda items. My inclination is to
focus on URN issues on Monday April 3 for 2 hours, and handle URL and
URC issues in the 2 hours on Tuesday; whether this will hold depends
in part on whether people actually deliver the internet-drafts they've
promised, so that we have some specific documents to talk about.

	URL/URN-> Thinking
	(No Internet draft yet, document proposed)
	time request: 30 minutes

	New (alternative) URN scheme, called the path scheme.
	No Internet Draft yet.
	No time request yet.

	Ron Daniel & Paul Hoffman
	New (alternative) URN scheme
	No Internet Draft yet.
	time request: 25 minutes

Relative URLs:
	Roy Fielding
	Internet draft: draft-ietf-uri-relative-url-05.txt
	Time request: 5 minutes (LMM: I think this needs at least 15).

New URL schemes:
	Z39.50 URL (John Kunze)
	Internet draft: draft-ietf-uri-url-irp-00.txt
	Time request: 15 minutes

	Finger, Mailserver
	Internet draft: draft-ietf-uri-url-finger-02.txt

	Paul Hoffman not coming to the meeting; does anyone want to
	lead the discussion on, 'finger' URL, 'mailserver' URL?  If
	not, I will hold a 15 minute discussion on these & the
	URL-scheme extension mechanism.

	Ron Daniel & Michael Mealing
	No revised Internet drafts yet (promised)
	Old draft: draft-ietf-uri-urn2urc-00.txt

	No request for time yet.
