A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

	Title		: The 'news' URL scheme
	Author(s)	: A. Gilman
	Filename	: draft-gilman-news-url-00.txt
	Pages		: 2
	Date		: 1997-09-10
This document defines the format of Uniform Resource Locators
(URLs) identifying news messages and groups.  The syntax of
'news' URLs from RFC 1738 is extended to allow specification of
the site from which the message is to be sought and to
incorporate protections via 'snews' URLs.  This combines into the
'news' scheme enough capability so that the previously-proposed
'nntp' scheme can be retired and URL usage simplified.
