#133 new defect

What to do about query part in URI->IRI mapping

Reported by: duerst@… Owned by: draft-ietf-iri-3987bis@…
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: 3987bis Version:
Severity: - Keywords:


Draft -12 does not mention the special case of the query part in URI->IRI mapping. I have put in some text (to appear in new draft) that optionally allows percent-escaping to remain in the query part for http:/https:.
Do we need more details for this optionality? Should this be mandatory?
I personally don't want it to be mandatory because in the future, when (almost) everything is UTF-8, unescaping will just be fine.

From [156]:

  • removed domain name consideration from list of percent-encodings that cannot be eliminated (factual fix)
  • added consideration of query parts to URI->IRI procedure (non-escaping is now possible, but optional, see ticket 133)
  • minor wording changes
  • some paragraph reformatting by oXygen Author mode
