Move `librehost.json` under `/.well-known/`
We started off with putting the
librehost.json file under the domain's web root. Recently privacytools.io created a JSON file under
/.well-known/ directory is indeed made to host that kind of data (cf. RFC8615).
Using a location under
/.well-known/ requires a formal registration with IANA (see Well Known URIs Registry) in the form of an RFC at IETF. Therefore this move should come as a 'natural' evolution of our discovery protocol. Yet, it requires some effort in order to obtain a permanent identifier from IANA.
Discussion needs to happen over these requirements:
set a proper location, e.g.:
(note that we could register
/.well-known/librehost.json, but setting a directory enables future extensions, e.g., supporting such things as
follow registration instructions in sections 3 and 3.1 to write an RFC
- open relevant shared draft topic on talk.libreho.st
- write, discuss, and validate RFC (see for example https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7033#section-10)
update all current
librehost.jsonto new format and location
- publish RFC
