URI Scheme Review Mailing List

A new (separate) mailing list has been established
specifically for the purpose of IETF review of
proposed URI schemes. The list is


The list is moderated; Patrik Fältström <paf@cisco.com>
is currently the moderator. See
https://www1.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/uri-review for info about 
the mailing list. Please subscribe if you are interested and willing
to help review URI scheme proposals and registrations. A separate
list was established because specific review requests for URI schemes
tended to not get responses on 'uri@w3.org'.
