     Hi Martin,
     Thank you for the response.  I will look into the working group.  I am 
     interested in the draft document you mentioned.  I have the RFC 1738 - 
     is that one one, or is there another one?
     I am also interested in finding out if our specification, or rather 
     our registration process for acquiring the specification falls short 
     of the requirements of being publicly available.  (Or could this be 
     something that is currently under discussion in teh working group as 
     In any case, I have startd on the internet-draft for using JetSend as 
     a URL scheme.  Hopefully I can get this finished up pretty quickly, 
     and we can go from there.
     Thanks again for your help.

Hello Theresa,
There is currently an IETF working group working on guidelines 
for URL registration. Registration of new URLs has to wait until 
this is completed. Your help in this working group may therefore 
be helpful to speed up the process. For more details on the WG, 
please see http://www.ietf.org/ and look for working groups
in the application area. I have also forwarded this mail to the 
mailing list of that group; for future mail, please use only 
that list, and not the current uri list, which only deals with 
URL syntax.
There is already a draft about the various things that have 
to be considered for a new URL scheme. But I can't find it's 
name at the moment, maybe somebody else can help.
One point that is rather important for IETF process is that 
the specification (not only of the URL itself, but also of 
the actual protocol, as far as I know) is publicly available, 
and I don't know whether your registration process, which I 
just went through, would qualify.
There are of course a lot of other things that need to be 
checked. I think it would be a good idea for you to start 
and try to write up an internet-draft about the URL, which 
later can become an RFC. This will help us to understand 
the procotol and the URL format and allow us to give you 
With kind regards,      Martin.
