Hello URL fans -

As you might know, the new charter for webapps[1] includes a new version of the 
URL spec. I am acting as editor of this spec. With some help from Robin and PLH 
I've produced a first draft[2] which imports the latest work by Anne on the 
upstream WHATWG URL spec[3] with a few minimal editorial changes.   Also note 
that the document is licensed as CC-BY. The intention is to keep this version 
in sync with the WHATWG version of the URL spec. This means that ideally any 
changes should be fed back through the WHATWG bug tracker[4]. The intention is 
to follow the model laid down by the DOM spec.[5]

It’s my further intention to ensure confusion is minimized by clearly 
sign-posting in the w3c version that the WHATWG version is the living spec.

This version updates and supersedes the previous W3C version published in May 
2012[6] and later updated in November 2012[7].

The goal is to move ahead fairly aggressively with the publication time-line 
for this spec.

Please feed back any comments here.
