Hi Jesper,


Thanks for bringing this up.

Do you know how we can make comments?  The authors' email addresses are
listed, but I don't know if there is a more formal mechanism.  I would
expect so.  (And you'd think they'd make it obvious.  Sigh.)

And, would you mind drafting the comment?  You're obviously far more
familiar with existing use of info: url's than me :).  Your email is
pretty much it, I think, just add more references and extract the info
spec part of the man page.

Technically, it seems current info url's and their proposed info url's
could coexist, since "virtual-filename" most commonly does
not contain a / (although we'd like it to, to support different
languages, but anyway ...).  And in the KDE case, where it's
(virtual-filename), they are definitely compatible.

I am not too hopeful about our chance of deflecting a proposal involving
such large institutions, Texinfo seems tiny by comparison, but it does
seem we should at least try.

BTW, perhaps we should write a draft or otherwise attempt to register
texinfo: as a URI scheme.  We could unify/formalize the existing
syntaxes.  Do you know how we could go about this?
