> As suggested by the inimitable Marcos Caceres, I have started a
> Community Group in which to work on the formal specification of URI
> and related technology.
> To begin, the group will only be focused on delivering a formal
> specification of the basic URI functions which can then be used as the
> source for generation of an HTML document, a test oracle (compilable
> The present plan is to use the tool Lem
> <http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~pes20/lem/> for authoring of the
> specification. I work closely with some of the authors of Lem and I am
> currently engaged in the specification of the POSIX 2008 file system
> API so any issues that may arise should be easily dealt with.
> Feel free to discuss this idea here or indicate your support
> <http://www.w3.org/community/groups/proposed/#urispec> for the
> Community Group. I am also interested in keeping this mailing list,
> WebApps, and the relevant IETF bodies apprised of our progress so
> please also indicate how you feel that would be best accomplished.
