Subject: RE: Registering a URI scheme

This paragraph from RFC3986 reassures me that sarif is a sensible URI scheme, even though its “scope” is a single SARIF file:


   URIs have a global scope and are interpreted consistently regardless
   of context, though the result of that interpretation may be in
   relation to the end-user's context.  For example, "http://localhost/"
   has the same interpretation for every user of that reference, even
   though the network interface corresponding to "localhost" may be
   different for each end-user: interpretation is independent of access.
   However, an action made on the basis of that reference will take
   place in relation to the end-user's context, which implies that an
   action intended to refer to a globally unique thing must use a URI
   that distinguishes that resource from all other thingsURIs that
   identify in relation to the end-user's local context should only be
   used when the context itself is a defining aspect of the resource,
   such as when an on-line help manual refers to a file on the end-
   user's file system (e.g., "file:///etc/hosts").


So I will proceed with the registration.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [sarif] Registering a URI scheme


Our TC’s work item https://github.com/oasis-tcs/sarif-spec/issues/182, “Register SARIF MIME type and sarif URI scheme” also proposed two other IANA registrations:


  • The URI scheme sarif, which points to locations within a SARIF file, for example sarif:/inlineExternalProperties/0
  • The media type application/sarif-external-properties+json, describing SARIF external properties files.


The media type is uncontroversial, and I’m going to begin the process of registering it.


As to the sarif URI scheme, I’m going to read RFC7595, “Guidelines and Registration Procedures for URI Schemes”, before deciding what to do. I’m a little concerned that the limited scope of this construct (pointing, as it does, into a single, un-named file) might not actually qualify it as a URI.
