XRI TC Wiki
Welcome to the XRI TC wiki. The XRI TC is currently in its third generation of specification development. The page is organized to provide quick access to the main active pages. Reference and archival page lists are included "below the fold".
Current Active Pages
This is the new standalone resource discovery spec that applies to both URIs and XRIs.
XrdOne/SpecHome is the spec home page for status, links, and issues management.
XrdOne/LinkHeader - HTTP Link Header proposal.
XrdOne/UriMapping - URI Mapping proposal (addresses URI templates and how to retire the current URI append attribute)
XrdOne/SimpleSign - Simple Signatures proposal for XRD signing and public key discovery.
XrdOne/XmlDsigProfile - Further evolution of the page above into a rough draft spec.
XrdOne/TrustWorkflowByExample - Proposal for trust workflow by example.
XrdOne/DelegationUseCase - Why trusted workflows need to include delegation.
XrdOne/DNSResolution - Proposal for DNS (DDDS) based XRD discover and URI Mapping.
XrdOne/TrustProfiles - Trust profiles for the XRD 1.0 specification.

XrdOne/OpenIdUseCase - Use case how XRD could be used on OpenID.
XrdOne/TrustElements - Functional definitions of the XRD 1.0 trust elements.
This spec will be packaged into the following parts. Each part has its own home page for status, links, and issues management. Each major open issue/proposal also has its own page.

The pages below are no longer active and are listed primarily for archival purposes.
XRI 2.0 Specification Suite -- Management & Development
XRI 2.0 Spec Suite Documentation (Non-Normative)
The TC plans to publish documentation for the XRI 2.0 suite of specifications as a whole. The following wiki pages are being used to manage these deliverables.
XriCd02/XriTwoCoreMessages is where TC members are developing the core messages for the XRI 2.0 suite.
XriCd02/XriTwoPresentation is the cover page for an XRI 2.0 presentation.
XriCd02/XriTwoWhitePaper is the cover page for an XRI 2.0 white paper.
The XRI 2.0 FAQ is currently in HTML but is being adapted for wiki editing.
XRI Resolution 2.0
This is the final specification in the XRI 2.0 cycle. It is now at Committee Draft 03 status. Future work will be part of the XRI 3.0 cycle (see above).
The following pages are all archival.
XriTwo/ResolutionCd03 contained the action items for producing Committee Draft 03.
XriCd02/SepSelection (issue #10) documents in pseudocode the service endpoint selecton (SEP) rules.
XriCd02/CanonicalIdVerification (issue #21) documents new CanonicalID verification parameter and processing rules.
XriCd02/ServiceRefs (issue #37) is a proposal to support refs at the service level to provide XRDS authors more direct control over physical distribution of XRDS documents.
XriCd02/SynonymSemantics is a proposal for synonym handling.
XriCd02/RefProcessing is a revised proposal for ref processing.
XriCd02/ConformanceSection is a draft of the Conformance Section of the spec.
(Obsolete) XriCd02/ResWd11Ed02 summarized comments/issues in ED02 that need to be discussed to prepare ED03.
The following pages were originally used to discuss a proposed XRI Syntax 2.1 specification. It was subsequently decided that this work should become XRI Syntax 3.0.
XriCd02/Xri2dot1Formats contains proposals for several new XRI forms.
XriCd02/DirectConcatenation documents a key new proposed feature of XRI Syntax 3.0 and shows how it works with XRI resolution.
XriCd02/EqualsAtSocialVulnerability discusses possible social attacks on concatenation of = and @ names and proposed solutions.
Outdated Pages The following pages remain listed for reference but have been superceded by the pages above.
XRI 3.0 Early Planning
The following proposals for XRI Syntax 3.0 were drafted in 2007 prior to the OASIS Standard vote on XRI 2.0, the W3C TAG discussions, and the XRI-as-relative-URI proposal (see links above). All of these are or have been refactored into new proposals for XRI 3.0.
XriThree/SyntaxOutline is the draft outline for version 3.0 of the XRI Syntax Specification.
XriThree/CompactSyntaxProposal contains an alternate proposal for version 3.0 of the XRI Syntax Specification.
XriThree/DollarAndPlusDictionaries discusses the differences and similarities between the \$ and + dictionary spaces.
XriThree/FormsAndTransformations contains the proposed XRI 3.0 "transformation ladder".
The status of this specification is currently undecided. The previous current working draft is XRI Metadata 2.0 Working Draft 09.
XriCd02/DictionaryDraft01 tracks all proposed issues, revisions, and corrections for the new XRI \$ Dictionary 2.0 specification that replaces XRI 2.0 Metadata Specification Committee Draft 01. (The former issues page for XRI Metadata 2.0 is at Xri2Cd02/MetadataChanges.)
XriCd02/DictionaryStructure is the draft outline of the spec.
