Subject: New VEMMI URL TS I-D and elevation to PROPOSED standard status

Hello Harald,

I have sent today to
a new release of the VEMMI URL Specifications I-D that I also send
you in a separate mail (draft-mavrakis-vemmi-url-spec-01.txt).

I have finally got various comments (after my mail of May 2) from
various software implementers, so I amended and improved the I-D
in order to take in account all comments received.

The changes are rather minor and all the significant ones regard a
better and more complete description of the client/server dialog during
the VEMMI service selection phase, in a new paragraph (Client/server
dialog during service selection), in order to better answer some
questions from developers (as 'must the username be followed by CR,
LF, CR/LF?'). I also regrouped all the parts dealing with security in
part 8, and updated the reference part.

We would be glad to have this technical specification elevated to
the Internet Standard level. I saw that you envisaged in
http://www.apps/ietf/org/apps/actions.html to elevate it to PROPOSED.
That would be very fine. After the required time (six months at least
if I follow RFC 1602), I think we will be ready to move it to
DRAFT as soon you will deem it relevant, as we have already more than
two independent and interoperable implementations, and as numerous
VEMMI services using this URL are now in operation.

Could you please help me to elevate the status of this TS (I presume
the required step is now to get IESG review and approval) to proposed

I thank you very much in advance for your help,

Very sincerely,

Daniel Mavrakis
