Fwd: I-D Action: draft-gregorio-uritemplate-06.txt

Roy T. Fielding
I have submitted draft 06 for URI Templates.  This draft is "complete"
in the sense that it addresses all feedback so far and doesn't have
any leftover todo sections to write.  However, there are major changes
since the last revision and possibly bugs left to uncover, so now is
the time for a careful review.

The main changes are complete description of the expansion algorithms
and the addition of two operators

  {&var}        for an optional &var=value to the end of a query component
  {#fragment}   for an optional fragment identifier

I also changed the way that i18n characters are allowed in variable
names because raw Unicode made the expansion process too difficult
to get right.  The draft could use more examples, as well, but I've
reached my limit.

As usual, all draft formats and a diff from 05 are available at
