Description

Section 6.1 of 4395bis states:

The registration process is an optional mailing list
review, followed by "Expert Review".

Yet Section 6.2 states:

Someone wishing to register a new URI/IRI scheme MUST [...]

  1. Send a copy of the template or a pointer to the containing

document (with specific reference to the section with the
template) to the mailing list uri-review@ietf.org, requesting
review.

Is the mailing list review optional or mandatory?

I think we should just go with Expert Review, since Expert Review allows the expert to ask for a mailing list review if there are any questions. This simplifies the process.

  1. Send a copy of the template or a pointer to the containing

document (with specific reference to the section with the
template) to the mailing list uri-review@ietf.org, requesting
review. In addition, request review on other relevant mailing
lists as appropriate. For example, general discussion of URI/IRI
syntactical issues could be discussed on uri@w3.org; schemes for
a network protocol could be discussed on a mailing list for that
protocol. Allow a reasonable time for discussion and comments.
Four weeks is reasonable for a permanent registration requests.

  1. Respond to review comments and make revisions to the proposed

registration as needed to bring it into line with the guidelines
given in this document.
