As part of our on-going development of standard protocols for building automation, we are requesting a /.well-known suffix. (We have already registered the needed Content-Types mentioned in the referenced document)

URI suffix:  "ashrae"

Change controller:  American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE)

Specification document(s):

Related information:  The referenced document is a new version of BACnet/WS (Building Automation and Control network / Web Services). BACnet (ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 135 and ISO Standard 16484-5) is the dominant protocol for commercial, industrial, and institutional building automation and control.  The primary protocol is based on binary encoded ASN.1 data structures.  This is a RESTful JSON and XML versions of that, plus numerous web-services-only features.  Initially, we need a way to discover URI prefixes for the resources on a given BACnet/WS server.  However, this /.well-known is being requested for "ashrae", rather than just "bacnet", so that other uses by the ASHRAE engineering society can be defined in the future.
Thank you for your consideration,
Dave Robin
Editor, BACnet Web Services
